“Moving Forward”, is a thrilling exhibition of paintings by Britt Boutros Ghalt currently on display at Picasso gallery in Zamalek. The artist showcases 20 paintings of her latest production using the expressionist abstract style and a palette rich in its bright and optimistic colours. She tackles a number of themes in her past exhibitions such as the female faces from different countries across the globe.

Once again Boutros Ghali impresses her audience with her paintings vivid with oil colours; an art media which she masters and the thickness of oil colours on the surface of the paintings is her trademark. She distinguished herself among her contemporaries with her style that is inspired by music, however, this music is visual reacts with the soul and touches the feelings.

Boutros Ghali, a Norwegain artist who settled in Egypt for more than quarter of a century, has focused on portraits, particularly the special features of the Egyptian woman. Boutros Ghali’s Norwegian roots mixed the charm of the Egyptian life. This is brilliantly reflected in her depiction of the human features in a very striking and abstract style. Boutros Ghali held her first solo exhibitions in 1965 in Paris and showed her paintings in Norway, England, Spain, Germany, the United States and Switzerland. In 1996, she received the most prestigious order of merit in Norway for her unique contributions to contemporary art.
