Recently, renowned Egyptian actress Sawsan Badr, nicknamed: The Nefertiti of Egyptian Cinema, took a photo session for Elle Arabia Magazine, which was inspired by the paintings of artist Alaa Abu el-Hamd, who, for his part, is also inspired by the art of ancient Egypt. Like the women in Alaa's artworks, Sawsan posed in a simple white dress adopting their different attitudes. A series of 8 photos has been published on Sawsan's Instagram account.

22/04/20 Art Recreation Challenge

Due the coronavirus outbreak life stands still - in Egypt for about 6 weeks. Artists, museums and galleries became very busy to create online showrooms, online support pages and online competitions while people stay at home. On 14 March 2020, a Dutch Instagram account appeared, which challenged art lovers to recreate works of art with objects (and people) from their homes and post them with the hashtag #tussenkunstenquarantaine. Many museums like the J. Paul Getty Museum or the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam followed. What began with just a couple of recreations is meanwhile a world-wide movement and the results range from impressive to funny. So let's jump in! Of course, it's more challenging with contemporary artworks but we have many artworks, which are worth a try.
The rules:
1 - Choose your favourite artwork from our artists or artworks pages
2 - Find (3) things lying around your house and recreate the artwork with those items
3 - Share @nunartgallery or send us an email if you aren't on Instagram.
That's it :-)

Well, although the paintings are since then at our gallery life sank our plan. What we can do now is to support the artists by sharing their artworks online. You find them on a separate artworks page, each photo clickable to enlarge it. Of course, they are for sale. If you would like to buy a painting contact us.
