After obtaining his BA in Textile Design and Printing at the Sudan University of Science and Technology in 1991, and a Diploma in Printmaking in Egypt, El Sadig Agena moved to Saudi Arabia in 1997, where his studio in Riyadh became the nucleus for the community of Sudanese artists working there. During this time, he completed numerous commissions and corporate murals, and now has works in various institutional collections in Saudi Arabia.

In 2003, Agena returned to Sudan where he now works as a full-time artist from his private studio in Khartoum. He has exhibited extensively in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Sudan, including a solo exhibition in 2016 at the Dama Art Gallery, Jeddah and has work in numerous international private collections.
