“Fades Away”, A Solo Exhibition by Walid Taher
In his body of work, titled "Fades Away", Taher once more seamlessly bridges the separate realms of visual art and the written word. In this collection, the artist set out to explore the verses of poetry by renowned poet Wadie Saadeh. It is the age-old unison of music and lyrics, using bold vivid colours to create an emotional symphony of art, words and meaning.
Ahmed El Kutt graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 2014 and received a MA in painting in 2015.

“My work has a lot of colors,” says El Kutt, who doesn’t shy away from vibrant and striking colors. “My portraits tend to express basic emotions like fear and joy.” Running in El Kutt’s work is a subtle theme of leaves, “Leaves or trees are a constant symbol in my work because I address nature as it relates to us as people.”
Ahmed El Kutt’s Work at the Artists of Tomorrow Exhibit
“I am showing a number of paintings at the Artists of Tomorrow exhibition. Every time I come to Arts Mart I see something different, there is always variation and an openness to different kinds of art.”
“The Artists of Tomorrow exhibition is going to be very strong. The Egyptian artists exhibiting, I feel, will become big household names in art in the near future. The exhibition space is vast and Arts Mart Gallery, in general, is a patron of young Egyptian artists, encouraging us and supporting us.”
