We are delighted to present, in collaboration with Snap14, an exhibition of Dr. Laila Allam’s Art Nouveau Style paintings at Osana.

Come and spend a lovely evening at the opening (Wednesday 20th March 6-9pm) browsing Laila’s artwork, participate in the silent auction, have a drink and mingle with the Osana community.

For this exhibition, and in celebration of Mother’s Day, the artist contemplates her ultimate female muse, the everyday Egyptian woman. Showcasing her as a girl raising her first pet, a young woman sitting at an ‘ahwa' or a mother comforting her child.

For decades, Laila Allam's paintings have been inspired by femininity in all its forms. In her paintings, she emphasizes the importance of women as the base of the family as well as society

About the artist: Dr. Laila Allam is a Cairo-based painter. She began her formal art education in the 1960s at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Zamalek and was immediately drawn to her Egyptian heritage as an inspiration for her work. An avid learner, Laila continued studying art for over 10 years until she earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Art Education.

Her work has been exhibited in Cairo, Alexandria and Qatar and she continues to mentor postgraduate students throughout the country.

Private view and silent auction on Tuesday, March 20th 6-9pm
