The prestigious Dubai-based Artspace Gallery, will hold an exhibit for the renowned Egyptian Artist Khaled Zaki, entitled In the Wind of January. Artspace is committed to the promotion of contemporary Middle Eastern art and artists. The gallery is a regional leader and its second location in London caters to its extensive global clientele while bridging the gap between the eastern and western art scenes. The sponsor of the event is Al Ramz Capital.
Born in Suez, Egypt in 1964, sculptor Khaled Zaki holds a Bachelor in Business from the Faculty of Commerce and a Master's in Restoration from the Faculty of Archaeology at Cairo University. Zaki studied Sculpture at the Al Khonany Museum of Art in Giza and perfected his use of stone and bronze in the various workshops in Pietrasanta Lu, Italy.
Zaki’s passion for the ancient Egyptian and Mediterranean arts and his deep concern about the resurrection subject can be touched in the forms, techniques and colors of his sculptures. He recently held the honor of representing his homeland in the Egypt Pavilion of the 2013 Venice Biennale. Zaki has participated in global exhibitions and symposiums. His works can be found in the Egyptian Museum for Modern Art, Cairo, and Egyptian Museum for Modern Sculpture in Aswan, and in private collections in the United States, Belgium, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Kuwait, UAE and KSA.
In the Wind of January explores the wind of the revolution, change, and the need to have the right to dream of a better future in order to defend the dignity and pride of the people.
