'The Last Supper': Mohamed Damarawy donates Gaza Angels exhibition proceeds to Red Crescent

Ahram Online , Saturday 25 Nov 2023

Egyptian artist Mohamed Damrawy will launch a solo exhibition titled 'The Last Supper' in Cairo's Demi Art gallery on Sunday, featuring his Gaza Angels painting



Gaza Angels (300x150cm) "documents the war on Gaza and the extent of the hideousness of the occupation, and sheds light on the Palestinian people and the tragedy experienced by the children, women among all civilians," read the commentary to the painting.

The artist pledged half of the proceeds from the sale of the painting to the Egyptian Red Cross which has been playing a leading role in delivering humanitarian relief to 2.4 million Palestinians under Israeli siege and bombardment in Gaza since 7 October.

Damrawy, known for his love of various aspects of daily life, portrays alleys, shops, street vendors, and coffee shops.

His depiction of these subjects has become more mature and profound through the use of calligraphy and colour.

Damrawy was born in Beheira Governorate in 1980.

He graduated from the College of Fine Arts in 2003.

Damrawy has held more than 10 solo exhibitions and participated in more than 20 group exhibitions.

His works have been displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo and the Cairo Opera House's exhibition halls, in addition to private collections in France, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Lebanon.

The exhibition will open on Sunday 26 November and continue until 15 December at Demi Gallery, 15 Ahmed Sabry Street, Zamalek.
