Under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture, Fayoum Art Center is pleased to announce the details of the annual international competition for caricature & satirical portrait “CARICATUNIS 2022”
Cartoon Theme: Climate Change
Climate change challenges and their impacts on future generations are more and more visible. YOU, the ARTISTS are visionaries and foretellers. Are you the optimist that can show us how an utopian future can look like? What would our world look like in the near future if nations in collaboration with the public and private sector, civil society and development partners work together towards a much needed change. Or warn us from the dystopian outcome that awaits us if we fail to act now to save generations to come.
Satirical Portrait: George Bahgoury
Through this year’s edition we would like to celebrate the iconic Egyptian cartoonist and visual artist George Bahgoury. His influences and contributions to the Egyptian as well as the international art scene in general, and caricature in particular deserve to be highlighted by your talents.
