Fayez Barakat pairs his breathtaking artistic technique with African pieces from the Barakat collection to create a series of unique painted tribal sculptures. These pieces reflect the influence that growing up surrounded by antiquities has had on the gallery founder’s own artistic journey. Featuring antiquities dating from the 1800 - 1900 CE, these works aim to bridge the gap between old and new, traditional and abstract, as Fayez explores both the cultural significance of works of the Songye, Luba, and Metoko tribes, among others, and the emotive and powerful work of the artist himself.
