On 20 February, “Humanity”, a painting exhibition by Egyptian artist Amy Abd El-Baky, will open at Al-Mashrabia Gallery in Dokki (not to be confused with another gallery called Mashrabia, in Cairo's Downtown).

Amy Abd El-Baky is a young artist who’s known by her method of linking art to life and society. Her choice of colour and texture reflects the movement and state of humanity in its vast arrays of civilisation, according to Al-Mashrabia Gallery's press release.

Her previous art exhibition, Jars of Clay, was held February 2015 at the Pop-Up-shop, where the people in her paintings go through journeys of emotional turmoil, trying to discover who they are and what their purpose is.


The exhibition opens on 20 February at 7pm and runs till 4 March
Al-Mashrabia Art Gallery, 80 Mohi Eldin Abul Azz Dokki, Giza, Cairo, Egypt
