Ubuntu Gallery will host a sculpture exhibition by sculptor and fine arts professor, Amgad El-Tohamy titled Dreams of Freedom, starting 26 November.

His bronze abstract sculptures are playful in terms of structure, inspired by both nature’s organic and architectural forms.

A collection of figurative sculptures explores the movement of the human body, “with all its curves and undulating lines, expressing mental thoughts in physical form” as the statement reads.

El-Tohamy was born in 1968 in Cairo.

He started exhibiting his work in 1990, two years before completing his Bachelor of Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo.

He went on to pursue a Masters degree in Fine Arts, and a PhD in art theory and philosophy focused on aesthetical approaches to using ready-made objects in sculpture during the second half of the twentieth century. 

Programme:
The exhibition opens on 26 November and runs till 16 December
Ubuntu gallery, 20 Hassan Sabry St., entrance from Ibn Zinki St. Zamalek, Cairo
