2 January-2 February 2012. This exhibition, entitled From Homeland to Heaven, displays the paintings by the Egyptian artist Samir Fouad.
Fouad was born in Heliopolis in 1944 and brought up in an art- loving environment, which influenced his artistic talent. He studied engineering at the Cairo University and started working with computers, but he never abandoned his passion for arts and especially for watercolours.
This self-taught artist was particularly influenced by the British watercolourists, such as Turner and Russell Flint. Since 1984 he became a professional artist in the Egyptian art scenery.
