    Lasting Impressions (Sixth Edition) - George Bahgory

    Lasting Impressions (Sixth Edition) - George Bahgory

    On the occasion of the "Lasting Impressions" sixth edition, Sharjah Museums Department published an exhibition catalogue titled "George Bahgory", a prominent artist who left a milestone in the region’s art scene.
     
    The artist has a long history of professional achievements that spanned more than half a century. Bahgory is best known for his cynical political critiques, which were the voice of the Egyptian street expressed through the Al-Ahram newspaper.
    The exhibition includes more than 90 artworks, some dating back to the fifties when he was a student at university, while others are his works  during later  periods.

    Bahgory’s art is unique in that it combines elements of classical and contemporary arts with a special touch of comedy. This retrospective exhibition offers a different  view for visitors  on the story of Bahgory and  sheds light on the human side of this unique artist.
