Magdi Adam Suliman

Acrylic on canvas, 150 x 250 cm

Ksh 400,000

Moving away from his usual motifs and use of colour, Suliman depicts a scene that variably repeats in different parts of the world, women sold in the sex trade. His paintings are not simply representations of the light and the surfaces and the events of human experience, but a dynamic reinterpretation of those experiences.

“For me, art not only evokes memories and contemplation of the loss of home but it also encounters the present and shape the future. My work is the product of a rich heritage from my origins in Sudan, my training there and my recent diaspora experience.”
