10th Cairo Biennale 2006
My first participation in the art life of cairo was on the Cairo Biennial 2006. I have arrived to Cairo only a few weeks before that show, and for me everything still had that incomparable taste of new. I did not know much of Egyptian contemporary art before I lived there and I was simply overwhelmed by it once I came to know it. I instantly became friend with scores of Egyptian artists; being Mediterranean myself I found it easy and natural to blend in just another shade of Mediterranean culture. These friendships are still very intense, although I have moved again to yet another cycle of life and art.
