Gamal Meleka is an Egyptian artist whose complex and determined personality is expressed through the body of his work. His emphasis on layering – through colour, form, and texture – transforms his views into contemplative spaces that keep the viewer enthralled and that reinforce a deep cultural and ideological exchange.
Born in Cairo, Meleka graduated with a diploma in graphics and headed to Italy to pursue a Doctorate in Painting. He continued to study at the Academy of Fine Art of Brera (Milan), by enrolling once again to obtain a second Doctorate in Theoretical and Television Scenography. During these years in Milan, Meleka held his first successful solo exhibition at the Collectors Club gallery that initially launched the artist's career. His art pieces have been published extensively in art books and editions, and he is the recipient of several international awards, including seven medals from the President of the Italian Republic and three medals from his holiness the Pope Paul II, as well as several national art awards in Italy.
