The Virus is Spreading: Opening Night

Work-in-Progress photo.

Described by Cairo360's Tanya El Kashef as a "candy shop for street-art lovers" and by Scoop Empire's Kareem El-Shaffei as "reflecting on topics closer to the general public rather than the typical gallery crowd," I think its safe to say that my show "The Virus is Spreading" at Safarkhan Art Gallery was a stellar success, despite its acknowledged shortcomings as pointed out in Mariam Hamdy's vicious review.



















Although the show didn't come out exactly as I'd envisioned, its close enough. Since the show opened, I'd actually been visiting the gallery to finish things up the way I want, but with the month and the show quickly coming to I close, I've decided it's time to take off them gloves and give up. The best part was seeing ecstatically amazed crowds in and around the gallery on opening night.

Also, when still int he process of putting the show together, I couldn't help but notice the look of awe and confusion on the faces of passers by, very similar to the look I'd see on the public's faces when creating my very first public mural. Now that was the most satisfying of all.







"The Virus is Spreading" would, of course, not be the same without the spontaneous contributions of these very fine guest artists: Nadim, Shank, El Teneen, Al Okasha, Maghraffiti, Hady Kamar, Annie Rebekah Gardner, Shabana, Mohammed Said, and Sad Panda! Thanks, y'all!

I'll be sure to post clearer shots of the actual artwork soon. Do stay tuned.
