"El Kehrita - Mohamed Sharkawy: a painting exhibition"
opened April 6 and runs through April 30, 2008 at Townhouse Gallery in Cairo.
Many and many years ago, nobody can count how many to this day; El Kehrita rituals were the best cure for human soul's sickness. The sick person, with no confusing details, just goes to her so she can perform the curing procedures, as she uses the help of Abou Asran The God-fearing, as well as the patient's and the curer's satisfaction and convenience, beside with the logic of such far time ago.
Mohamed Sharkawy was born in Qena province, Upper Egypt.
He currently resides in Cairo and is an instructor at the Friday workshops in the Townhouse Gallery on animation with working children. Since his first exhibition at The Townhouse "El Daba" in 2006, Sharkawy has taken part in workshops across the region including an animation workshop in Bahrain at the Alriwaq Gallery in 2007. Most recently he was involved in a group exhibition "100 mm" that showcased miniature art in Artellewa.
