“As a Sudanese, my past and present are marred with memories of loss, isolation, migration, exile, and forgotten heritage,” Salim explains. His paintings are a physical manifestation of a dialogue between different cultures. Behind his work lies a strong feeling that art is not merely something to look at, but also a tool that should be used to help facilitate this dialogue. Salim’s work represents an appreciation for his dual African and Islamic identity, and consequently, celebrates diversity in general.
