The pieces in the exhibition were submitted through an open call, the result of which is a beautifully diverse collection of different perceptions of life in Cairo, with works inspired by the lions of the Qasr Al Nile Bridge, flip flops Egyptian and much more.

Cairopolitan’s unique designs are known for their witty interpretation of life in Egypt. One of their most popular products is the Baladi Pouch, which is a humorous tribute to a staple of every Egyptian breakfast table. Their designs are printed on a variety of items, from clothing and accessories to candles and coasters.

The first edition of the Cairo Prints Exhibition was held in February 2020 and featured the works of over 50 artists. This year’s exhibition will end on June 27 and admission is free.
