The artist, Britt Boutros Ghali, has exhibited internationally throughout her career in well known galleries in Paris, New York and Berlin. Her work is collected in both public and private collections worldwide.
Her work has been exhibited along with works of Picasso, Kandinsky and Weidemann, as well as contemporary artists such as Eric Rein, Nabil Nahas and Jack Roth in a recent exhibition in The Edelman Art Gallery in New York.
Britt was born in Norway, North of the Arctic Circle. 18 years old she travelled to the capital, Oslo, and it was soon discovered that she had a talent for painting.
Her ensuing career took her around the world, where at one point she met her Egyptian husband, Mr Raouf Boutros Ghali. She has spent the last 30 years in Cairo, where she has her studio on a river boat on the Nile. The rich and colourful environment of Egypt has greatly influenced her work. She is well known for her vibrant, colourful and energetic paintings.
In 1996 Britt was awarded the St. Olav’s order, the highest honour that can be given to an artist, by King Harald V of Norway. The only other painter who has received this distinction is Mr Edward Munch.
