Egyptian sculptor Kamal El-Feki joins 18 artists for a summer showcase in New York's Agora Gallery's Summer Idyll from  27 June to 17 July.

El-Feki creates powerful life-sized bronze sculptures which explore questions and issues faced by modern man on a daily basis, ranging from the cultural to the political.

Kamal El-Feki mixes traditional and abstract approaches in his representation of the human form. He describes his work as an existential search into the essence of himself, modern man, and man throughout time; asking who we are, why we are here, and what's the necessity of art in society.

El-Feki has received numerous grants and awards for his work throughout his career, including two full-time grants from the Egyptian Ministry of Culture in 2011 and 2012, a Cairo Salon Award in 2013, as well as an Alexandria Biennale Award in 2014. In 2014,  he was also awarded the Egyptian Award for Creativity. He currently lives and works between Egypt and Italy.
