About this Item
Born in Sudan, North Africa, Salim took refuge in the United Kingdom, Germany, Egypt, and South Africa, because of a tumultuous political and economic period, before returning to his homeland. After artistic training at Khartoum University, he attained his master’s degree in Fine Art at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. His artwork, characterised by its abstraction in lively colours and patterns, explores themes of diaspora and living amongst multicultural communities. He has exhibited extensively overseas along with acclaimed local galleries, most recently ‘Garden of Carnal Delights’, a solo exhibition at The Melrose Gallery, Johannesburg, South Africa in 2020.
