LondonPaint Me Mine. African Art Collecting and Acrylic Splashing
Barakat London presents Paint Me Mine, a selling exhibition exploring the beautiful and broad Barakat collection of African antiquities, complemented by the art of Fayez Barakat.
Barakat Gallery is pleased to announce that for the first time at the gallery in London, the breathtaking paintings of Fayez Barakat are paired with his unique painted tribal sculptures, reflecting the influence that growing up surrounded by antiquities has had on the gallery founder’s own artistic journey. Featuring antiquities dating from 1800 CE, Paint Me Mine aims to bridge the gap between old and new, traditional and abstract, as we explore both the cultural significance of works of Kuba, Baule, and Songye origin, and the emotive and powerful work of Fayez Barakat himself.all images © the gallery and the artist(s)
