Born in 1966 in Central Sudan, Hassan Fadul studied Graphic Design at the College of Fine and Applied Arts in Khartoum. Shortly after his graduation in 1995, Fadul left Sudan, along with many other Sudanese artists at the time, and moved to Nairobi where he has lived and worked since.
This evocative painting tells of the ancient, underwater cities that, along with their treasures and stories, have been submerged beneath the waves.
Fadul’s paintings were exhibited early on at Paa Ya Paa Art Centre and the Nairobi National Museum and have continued to be shown regularly with galleries including Ramoma and One Off in Nairobi and Tulifanya Gallery in Kampala. Fadul has also exhibited in Spain, the UK, Sudan and Germany.
His works are part of private collections in France, the USA, Spain, Tanzania, Kenya, the Netherlands, Sweden and Canada.
