This is a Dream Come True
An exhibition by Ali Abdel Mohsen
Mashrabia Gallery, Cairo
This is a Dream Come True is Ali Abdel Mohsen`s third solo exhibition and reflects his sense of humor, as well as his interest in current events and the recent massive changes of his hometown. But the exhibition and its ironic title also reflect his fascination with comics, pulp fiction, and sci-fi films. The city he presents through ink drawings on cardboard is apocalyptic yet captivating; the closer you look, the more you will see time and time again.
In this video, Abdel Mohsen speaks of his views of the city and the process through which his new body of work was developed.
