I am a Sudanese artist working with art installations, photography, film, mixed media, writing and spoken word. My art work has been shown in Brazil, Egypt, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Korea, Nigeria, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the USA, since I began my career in Sudan in late 2003. "In Search of Hip Hop", my first film, won official selection at Rotterdam and Dubai film festivals in 2013. I'm currently a contributing editor of Agave an online magazine and writing for film, while I prepare for upcoming exhibitions of Nora's Cloth during the winter of 2013/2014. Nora's Cloth is an Ibsen Scholarship award winning project (2011).
