In 2011 Nazir invited painter Ibrahim El Tanbouli, Egyptian painter who is also Nazir’s uncle, to come to Studio 75 to do a painting show called Family Business
Ibrahim El Tanbouli at Studio75, 2011
The Tanboulis are a family of artists, and so far the artistic gene passes from uncle to nephew. The first Tanbouli painter on record was Lotfy El Tanbouli (1919 – 1982 ), painter and one of Egypt’s foremost Egyptologists.
In 2013 they decided to do something different. Instead of each doing their own painting, they decided to work on the same picture. They produced six paintings by combining their own distinctive and different styles onto one sheet.
The show is on now at the Yellow Wall, for another 6 weeks.
The Yellow Wall is located at The Chalet Cafe, 225 – 227 Kingsland Road, E2 8AN London, UK
