How it Started
Childhood friends and Co-founders Dina Shaaban and Lina Mowafy have always had an appreciation for the world of art. They both studied art at university but decided to pursue other careers due to the limited opportunities of the Egyptian art scene at the time. Years later, in 2009, they developed the concept for TAM Gallery: a virtual and physical space that bridged the gap between their growing network of talented contemporary artists looking for a new platform to sell and promote their work, and consumers interested in experiencing and buying unique contemporary art.
