April/May Sharm El Sheikh, EgyptI have recently attended the Ostraka International Festival Arts from –29 April to 6 May Sharm El Sheikh – that was organized by artist and curator Mohammad Hemedah under the theme of Peace.
The experience was enriching and involving. I had the honor of meeting some of the best artists in the region from KSA, Yemen, Syria, and Egypt of course, and specially enchanted to meet Kim, a talented artist/sculpturer from Korea
Honorary guest of the event was Farouq Wahba, whose presence not only enlightened the artists with his wisdom and guidance, yet also gave a valuable lecture summing up his life experiences, and his views, and intimate thoughts on art and artistic creation and movement.
The symposium was in the enchanting Sharm El Sheik, on the cost of the magnificent azure of the red sea. The symposium was closed by an art exhibition inaugurated by Sharm el Sheikh civil bodies and representatives, where prizes and letters of appreciation were given to the artists.
