Highlights from ‘The Collector’s Eye VI’ at Cairo’s Ubuntu Gallery

Here are some highlights from ‘The Collector’s Eye VI’ at Cairo’s Ubuntu Gallery that is open until September 14. 

Seif Wanly

The sixth edition of Ubuntu’s annual ‘Collector’s Eye’ exhibition includes work from a number of well-known modern and contemporary Egyptian artists, including this piece from the late Seif Wanly, who — together with his brother Adham — is regarded as one of the founders of Egyptian modern art.

Ragheb Ayad

Ayad is one of the most significant artists in Egypt’s recent history. Before his death in 1982, aged 90, he had helped to establish a thriving modern-art movement in his country, and his depictions of everyday life and nature had begun to shift artistic representation of Egypt away from the Orientalists.

Vassela Farid

Although she was originally from Belgium, Farid moved to Egypt in 1938, and came to be regarded as a true Egyptian artist before her death, aged 93, in 2007. Her figurative portraits of Egyptian women, in particular, showed a deep affinity for, and understanding of, her adopted home.

Lebanese singer Haifa Wehbe denies marriage claim from ex-manager

DUBAI: Lebanese superstar Haifa Wehbe has caused a stir on social media after her ex-manager Mohammad Waziri filed a lawsuit in Egypt’s Family Court to prove his marriage to the star.

On Sunday, the singer took to Twitter to deny his claims saying: “After the judicial leave ends, legal measures will be taken against those who made this defamation, and we will wait for the outcome of the investigation and the results of the judicial ruling on that.”

According to ET Bilarabi, the actress filed a lawsuit through her attorney in Egypt against Waziri a few weeks ago, accusing him of withdrawing around $4 million from her account.
