Paint Me Mine: African Art Collecting and Acrylic Splashing

Barakat London is pleased to present Paint Me Mine, a selling exhibition exploring the beautiful and broad Barakat collection of African antiquities, complemented by the art of Fayez Barakat. We are pleased to announce that for the first time at Barakat London, the breathtaking paintings of Fayez Barakat will be paired with his unique painted tribal sculptures, reflecting the influence that growing up surrounded by antiquities has had on the gallery founder’s own artistic journey. Featuring antiquities dating from the 1700 - 1900 CE, Paint Me Mine aims to bridge the gap between old and new, traditional and abstract, as we explore both the cultural significance of works of Kuba, Baule, and Benin City origin, and the emotive and powerful work of Fayez Barakat himself.
