Mohamed Abla | Identity




Born in Mansoura, Egypt, in 1953, Mohamed Abla graduated in 1977 from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Alexandria. Abla studied in Zurich's Bauhaus Oriental School and travelled extensively in Germany. In the early ’80s, he studied graphics in both Switzerland and Austria. Abla held his first solo exhibition in 1977 in Egypt, and then in 1979 his first solo international exhibition in Germany.
