Mediterranean Faces

Andreas Karayan and Ezmat Dawestashy at Omicron

This exciting exhibition closes tomorrow so do hurry.

It has been organised by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and has previously been shown at the Bibliotheca Alexandria.

Karayan writes of these paintings.

"Ten years ago I came to Alexandria with Niki Marangou as a guest artist at the ‘Cavafia’ to celebrate the memory of the poet Cavafis. One night as I was walking in the streets of Alex admiring the magnificent buildings and enjoying the gentle sea breeze a great desire fell upon me to come, live and work in this city

It all began last December when I exhibited some of my work at the biennale of Cairo. My good friend Mohamed Elsaadari invited me to visit him in Alexandria, his native city. The decisive point for this show was my meeting with Dr Mohamed Awad at the impressive Bibliotheca Alexandrina and our common interest in the Hellenistic Heritage and the Alexandrian dream

Ezmat Dawestashy was born in Alexandria on March 14, 1943

He graduated with honours in Sculpture from the Alexandria Faculty of Fine Arts in 1967 and two years later established the ‘Gamaet Eltahawul’.

Since 1962 he has participated in several group exhibits and has held 60 private exhibitions of his paintings, plus several photographic exhibitions. The Ministry of Culture awarded Dawestashy the State Fellowship for Creative Artists in1996.

You will all be familiar with Karayan’s sensitive portraits, capturing character with such acute observation, and his gift for excellent brushwork.

Dawestashy’s paintings are a great surprise. These are completely new to me and I was bowled over. Brilliant. For some reason or other I expect the island’s figurative artists to now take more than a second glance at our superb icons when they tackle a Cypriot face.
