 “Memories of Al-Azhary Street: The Phobia of Space," a new exhibition by Egyptian artist Ahmed Abdel-Ghany, is set to open today, 27 December, at Zamalek's Picasso Art Gallery. 

The exhibition, which runs until 12 January, showcases 30 paintings centred on Cairo's Al-Azhary Street in Shobra, where the artist spent his childhood and teenage years.

Abdel Ghany describes his works as “a voyage inside the buildings, the stairs and the alleyways, the windows, the doors, the walls, the floors, the balconies and old decorations that transport us back to a beautiful time.”

The exhibition runs between 27 December and 12 January 
Picasso Art Gallery, 30 Hassan Asem St, off Brazil St, Zamalek, Cairo
