Works by Amre Heiba presenting mainly still life, acrylic on canvas, are described as a cross between graffiti and new expressionism.
Heiba's new work causes the viewer a sense of disorientation. Although it represents scenes of daily life, time and space remain undefined - almost suspended. Human beings and animals are part of the scenes, but the artist treats them as objects, reason for this exhibition's provocative title: Still Life.
The exhibition opens on 6 March at 7pm and runs until 7 April.
