​In line with its commitment to support the talents of Egyptian youth, the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB), Egypt’s leading private bank, sponsored the third round of the cultural event “Salon Al-Ganoub”, held in Luxor and launched an art initiative in cooperation with Faculty of Fine Arts, South Valley University. 

During the “Salon Al-Ganoub” celebration, the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) announced the five winners and distributed prizes to honor the artists and bought their winning art pieces to be part of the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB)’s Art Collection as an encouragement for them to generate more creative artworks that contributes to the enrichment of the Egyptian Art.


As for the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB)’s art initiative in Luxor, the Bank organized an art exhibition for the students and fresh graduates of the Faculty of Fine Arts, South Valley University, through which they were given the opportunity to show and display their art pieces. 

More than 30 artists submitted their works to the exhibition, which were evaluated by a committee of Fine Arts professors and CIB-Egypt representatives. The committee members selected the best art pieces, which counted for 40 items that were acquired by the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) for its art collection. 


Mohamed Ahmed Oraby, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at South Valley, praised the role of the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) in supporting the art and culture in Upper Egypt, confirming that this support opens up the door for more artists to show their creativity and further develop their talents. 


It’s worth mentioning that this is the second time the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) acquires art pieces as an encouragement for young talents. In November 2014, the Bank obtained 86 pieces of distinguished art graduation projects of 56 fresh graduates of the Faculty of Fine Arts, Alexandria University.


Hisham Ezz Al-Arab, Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) Chairman and Managing Director, clarified that the CIB-Egypt’s art initiative confirms the bank’s commitment towards the community and Egyptian citizens, especially in the areas that lack adequate care. This is part of the Commercial International Bank-Egypt (CIB) strategies of Community Service Responsibility (CSR), which plays a fundamental role in the bank’s activities. Ezz Al-Arab expressed his appreciation to all artists who were keen to participate and to the Faculty of Fine Arts for their cooperation.
