Alaa Aboelhamd ‭ ‬علاء‭ ‬ابوالحمد ‎ It is because of artists like Alaa Abu Al-Ahmed that the idea for Luxor Art Gallery came to be. Alaa is an elusive, intriguing artist. Like déjà vu, his paintings feel familiar, yet they are rare to encounter and mystifying to experience. A significant, potent painter whose works speaks boldly of the past and the present, Alaa brings a sensibility and benevolence to all his portraits of Egyptian men and women: ethereal beings who are both vulnerable flesh and eternal souls, tied to their histories yet ever living for the future. There is simply a timelessness to his paintings. They are sublime works of art, full of grace, heritage, and hope. We are honored to exhibit his work at Luxor Art Gallery. —D.N.
