George Bahgory was born in Luxor, Egypt in 1932. He later moved to Paris to study and lived there for 30 years, pursuing his multiple talents in marionette art, novel writing, sculpting and more.
Now his post-revolution work is being featured in a solo-exhibition at
Al-Masr Gallery (from January 15-31, 2012).
He depicts ironic scenes, such as the battle that took place on February 2, 2011 when camels and horseback riders were hired out from tourist areas to attack those in Tahrir.
