Egyptian sculptor Amgad El-Tohamy to exhibit at Ubuntu Gallery

Fri, Nov. 24, 2017
CAIRO – 24 November 2017: Cairo’s Ubuntu Gallery will be showcasing an exhibition of the works of Egyptian sculptor Amgad El-Tohamy, titled “Dreams of Freedom”, which runs from November 26 until December 16.

Born in 1968 in Cairo, El-Tohamy has been exhibiting his work since 1990. A sculptor and professor of fine arts, El-Tohamy completed his Bachelor of Arts at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cairo in 1992 and went on to pursue a Masters degree in Fine Arts, and a PHD in Philosophy, all while remaining a prolific sculpture in his own right.

Working mainly with bronze, El-Tohamy aims to express thought through form by experimenting with styling the human body with abstract works of metal that embody elements of organic life. His aim is to not to mimic life directly but rather show that a stiff and structured metal, can be as dynamic in form as a leaf.

His more figurative works exaggerate all the facets of the human body, creating a figure through only simple shapes, with an instantly recognizable form.

The Ubuntu Gallery was founded by Ahmed Dabaa in October 2014 and is dedicated to showcasing a wide variety of artists. It is located on Zamalek’s Hassan Sabry Street in Cairo.
