Titled ‘People You May Know’, Walid Ebeid will showcase his newest paintings at Art Talks gallery starting 5 February.

In his artworks, Ebeid tackles “issues like sexuality, immigration and oppression…as he brings attention to the sufferings, struggles, and hopes of women in our society over the course of recent decades,” according to the exhibition statement.

Through his series of realistic expressionism portraits and figures, he breaks social and moral taboos as he paints women and prostitutes, channelling their issues and concerns.

He seeks to express what occupies people’s minds and feelings.

"The artist is a lawyer who defends any accused person when society plays the role of the judge,” the artist says.

An Egyptian oil painter, Ebeid was born in 1970 and graduated in 1992 from The Helwan Faculty of Arts in Cairo.

His work has been exhibited internationally since 1992.

The exhibition will open on 5 February at 6pm, and will run till 17 February
Art Talks, 8 El-Kamel Mohamed St., Zamalek, Cairo
