Katherine Bakhoum was born in Cairo in 1949 to an Egyptian father and French mother. She spent most of her childhood in Egypt but left when she was twelve to live in Paris. “I have very good memories of that time,” Bakhoum recalls. “Egypt was not overcrowded, and we had a happy, cosmopolitan childhood. It seems the departure left me with certain nostalgia.”
Bakhoum studied in Paris at Penninghen, a private school of design, graphic art, and interior design, under the auspices of l’Ecole Estienne, the graduate school of the arts and printing industry. Though the experience gave her the base she needed to become an artist, Bakhoum pursued her studies by experimenting with multiple media. For more than a decade, Bakhoum has held an annual exhibit at the Safarkhan Gallery (Zamalek, Egypt). She has had annual solo shows in Paris’s Galerie Claudine since 1996 and in Galerie Safar Khan in Cairo since 1999. Though she lives in Paris, displaying her work in Egypt is a way to stay connected with her past and promote the work of Egyptian artists. Her current exhibit is especially evocative of her roots, as many of the images are inspired by Oriental ideas.
