Mutaz ElEmam’s practice includes both landscape paintings and abstract works. Informed by the many places he has worked, lived, and continues to experience today, his works suggest ethereal contexts not really of this world– yet strongly evocative of a parallel realm.
ElEmam graduated from the department of Fine Arts at the Sudan University of Science and Technology, Khartoum. He is also a member of the General Union of Sudanese Plastic Artists in addition to the Cairo Atelier of Artists. He has participated in solo and group exhibitions both regionally and internationally including the 5th Beijing Biennale in 2012, The Khartoum School: The Making of the Modern Art Movement in Sudan (1945–Present), Sharjah Art Foundation, Sharjah (2016) and the Biennale de Sarria, Sarria (2017). His works are in both private collections and public institutions.
