Omar Gabr’s Exhibition at Ubuntu Art Gallery

Ubuntu Art Gallery is displaying another inspiring painter’s artwork. Despite his young age, Omar Gabr’s work is praised in many key galleries. If you’re into art, but you have no academic background, Gabr’s exhibition will make you feel included. Can you guess why? He didn’t study art, which has allowed him to express himself without any intrusive academic influences freely.

Don’t miss this chance! The exhibition is open from 11:00 am to 8:00 pm, every day except Fridays, until the 11th of December. For more information, click here.
