Event Details

Mashrabia Gallery presents “A sketch is a sketch is a sketch”, a solo Exhibition by George Bahgory.

How many exhibitions did Bahgory during his long career? It is impossible to know exactly, but this one is supposed to be the very last one while the artist is still alive. Could we believe that?

This captivating exhibition would like to pay homage to the ingenious artist and his career. Drawing being an integral part of who he is, Bahgory throughout his life couldn’t detain himself from drawing – like a magnificent obsession – his everyday surroundings, whether it was a beautiful scenery or at his everyday cafe.

Divided in different sections ranging from portraits to nudes to streets scenes, this exhibition stresses the ability of Bahgory to create a whole world through a mere simple black line. Colours add to the compositions a touch of sensuality, recalling the freedom of expression which has characterised his entire production.
