Ibrahim El-Salahi
Lives & Works in Oxford, UK
Ibrahim El-Salahi is one of the most important living African artists and a key figure in the development of African Modernism. El-Salahi grew up in Omdurman, Sudan, and studied at the Slade School in London. On his return to Sudan in 1957, he established a new visual vocabulary which arose from his own pioneering integration of Sudanese, Islamic, African, Arab, and Western artistic traditions. The Tate Modern’s 2013 retrospective of El-Salahi’s work was the Museum's first exhibition dedicated to Africa Modernism. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Art Institute of Chicago; The National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC; The British Museum, London; Tate Modern, London; The Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, UAE; The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; Newark Museum, Newark; Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah; The National Gallery, Berlin, and many others. Ibrahim El-Salahi will be presented by Vigo Gallery.
