Arts Mart, the first and our personal favorite, online art gallery launched its first physical art space! The launch event took place last Friday, December 5th. To make the celebration even more special, Egyptian renowned artist Mohamed Abla displayed a collection of his work spanning over 30 years.
Abla, most famous for capturing Egypt’s history with his brush strokes, has presented viewers the unique opportunity to view his homage to Egypt.
Arts Mart gallery, which is located on the Cairo-Alexandria Desert road, 2km from Mehwar exit, is the latest update to a project first started by Lina Mowafy, Dina Shaaban and Hatem Zaazou. The project was to give artists an online platform to display their work and put it up for sale. As long as it was art, it could be sold there. Anyone from big tycoons to up and coming artists could use Arts Mart website to sell their work. It went on to become not only the first, but also the largest online gallery in the Middle East.
And now, artists can have this experience, only on a personal face-to-face basis with their fans. We couldn’t be more excited!
