Bakri Bilal

Sudanese 1943- 

Bakri Bilal, a Sudanese artist and art teacher, was born in Omdurman near Khartoum in 1943. His youth was influenced by his family’s interest in art, education and the media, and the multi-faceted ethnicities of the people in the city markets. He attended The College of Fine and Applied Art in Khartoum where he graduated in 1967 with an Honours degree in painting, followed by a diploma in education from the Khartoum Polytechnic in 1976. Bilal lived and taught in Saudi Arabia and Libya before returning to Sudan, where he established an Art Centre in his home in Khartoum where he continues to work and teach. Bilal’s stylised Modernist paintings are influenced by his Sudanese heritage – especially by the mysteries surrounding the beauty of women. His compositions are characterised by the use of bright colours and strong lines. Bilal has exhibited extensively in Sudan and internationally, including in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Kuwait and the United States of America. His artworks can be found in many private and public collections in Sudan, Europe and the United States.
