Hussein Salim

Hussein Salim was born in Karima, Sudan in 1966 and graduated at the College of Fine and Applied Arts, Sudan University of Science and Technology, Khartoum in 1994.
In 2007 he obtained an MA in Fine Arts at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, PMB.
He currently resides in PMB.
Hussein’s richly textured canvases employ an extravagant layering technique to create a dense impasto feel. He uses personal symbolism that is at once ancient as it is contemporary.
Hussein’s paintings are a dialogue between different cultures and represent his strong feelings that art must be used as a tool to help initiate this dialogue. Salim’s Sudanese background, and the fact that Sudan is a melting pot of diverse African cultures, further strengthens his paintings. Through these works Salim awakens in us an appreciation of our differences and diverse reactions, but then brings us back to the shared foundation of mankind.

His paintings, founded and steeped in a fondness for diversity, thus sympathize with any fight that challenges dimensional predominance, may it be economical, religious or cultural.
He is represented in major national collections within Africa, Europe and the USA.
