The Good, the Bad and the Crimson Shoe is the first major show for artists Mohamed El Maghraby and Ahmed Tawfig. The show is curated by Medrar for Contemporary Art and is based on a selection from two new series the artists have been working on. Maghraby`s study of architecture, as well as the aesthetics of the Internet, greatly influences his work, while Tawfig presents a group of digital prints inspired by his childhood memories.
Mohamed El Maghraby (b. 1985) graduated from the Architecture Department of the High Institute of Technology in 2007. Since 2012, he has used architecture as a visual and philosophical reference in his artwork. He experiments with drawing, painting, print, and illustration.
Ahmed Tawfig (b. 1992) currently studies at the High Institute for Applied Arts. He makes comics and digital drawings.
