Mind Maps: Karnik Gallery - 12 Hay Hill

17 June - 15 July 2022

Karnik Gallery is excited to announce its first exhibition for the Egyptian-Greek artist, 'The Sultan' Adham Abdelmoneim. Mind Maps opens on Friday June 17th with a cocktail reception at our headquarters in 12 Hay Hill, London, W1J 8NR, from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. The exhibition consists of sixteen new pieces, all created in acrylics and acrylic marker.

After graduating from the European University of Geneva in 2019, Abdelmoneim began painting from his home-studio. What initially commenced as a creative pursuit to express his feelings and life experiences, during lockdown, later evolved into a fully fledged artistic career. It comes with no surprise that Abdelmoneim would eventually find a calling in art, as the creative spark runs through his family; most notably his grandparents actress, Mimi Gamal and actor, Hassan Mostafa, who are highly celebrated in Egypt.

Abdelmoneim's oeuvre draws inspiration from life's greatest creator - nature. He combines natural forms from the Earth with thoughts and ideas that frequent his mind. The result of this process, is an amalgam of natural subjects and expressive shapes, usually conducted in acrylic markers.

Art is a gift, art is another world and the few lucky ones in this life have the key to this world of dreams and imagination. Says the artist.

'The Sultan' Adham Abdelmoneim (b. 1996, Cairo, Egypt) has admired fine art, foods and wine since his early childhood. Surrounded by artists, actors and poets, he has brought together his life experiences into his works. His first exhibition in Cairo in 2020 sold-out in three days and the artist's works are held in numerous reputable private collections across Europe and the Middle East.
