Nūn Art Gallery is a unique contemporary art gallery in Luxor, Egypt, that organises art exhibitions and art events. It is dedicated to showcasing the impressive visual artworks of Egyptian artists and non-Egyptians living in Egypt, continuously promoting established artists as well as searching for new talents.

Nūn Art Gallery is founded and jointly managed by Sayed Qinawi and Claudia Ali. From February 2020 on, Nūn Art Gallery is reviving the well-known art space beside Wannas Art Cafe close to the Nile on the west bank of Luxor.

We chose the Nūn to represent our gallery because of its complex meaning in the Sufi tradition as well as in the ancient Egyptian mythology. If you like to know more about the Nūn — artist Brian Flynn, who also designed our logo, wrote an enlightening article for us: "The Meaning of Nūn".

The current situation is more than difficult for artists and of course also for galleries. Please consider buying artwork to support the art scene in Luxor. Contact us and we will keep it for you until your next visit or find a way to send it to you. Even when the exhibition itself is finished we can make an arrangement
if the artwork in question isn't sold yet.

Ganubiyat Triple Exhibition

In the presence of the three exhibited artists Afaf Salah, Ashraf Abo Elmagd and Gamal Latif, the Ganubiyat exhibition was opened by Dr Yousef Mahmoud, dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Luxor, on 11 January 2021. We also had the pleasure to welcome journalist Haggag Salama and a crew of Tiba TV, who interviewed the artists.

The Ganubiyat exhibition (ganubjyat is Arabic for "southerners") presents three artists, who come from Egypt's south. Gamal Latif, Afaf Salah and Ashraf Abo Elmagd transfer scenes from everyday life into amazing colourful paintings. In this way, they ensure that the rural scenes, powerful customs and traditional festivities, which they depict in their artworks, won't be forgotten in modern-day Egypt. Open until 31 January!

Ahmed El-Shafei Solo Exhibition

The Golden Gifts exhibition was opened on Tuesday, 8 December 2020 by artist Ahmed el-Shafei, Prof Emad Abu Zaid and Prof Hany Rizk, both from the Helwan University. We felt greatly honoured by the presence of the renowned professors and artists of the 13th Luxor International Painting Symposium and the dean, the doctors and artists of Luxor's Academy of Fine Arts. Also, after the long summer hiatus, it was fantastic to gather again for art and meet friends.

The ancient Egyptians left us so many invaluable gifts, which are still inspiring our daily lives. Ahmed el-Shafei studied their art for 15 years. His paintings aim to return gifts to his ancestors.
