In 2013 I had the opportunity to meet three different artists.
Ehoodi Kichapi (Kenya), Salah EL Mur (Sudan), and Souad Abdelrasoul (Egypt); And due to my unconditional conviction and my great interest in the development of contemporary African art in Spain, I have the privilege of once again presenting these artists in my Gazzambo gallery.
My first contact with Souad was extremely fluid, and I no doubt understood his work immediately.
She is an Egyptian woman of strong roots, but with an open look on the world. The woman has a very important role and her work is the reflection of these.
Salah El Mur knows that he is an artist since childhood, as he says "I started scribbling before saying my first words".
His work is the dedication to African modernism and reveals his intense spiritual faith and his deep artistic tradition Sudanese.
I met Ehoodi Kichapi in April 2012, through an amazing article in the Business Daily in Nairobi, "Ehoodi: Charlatan or new Picasso"; I thought, I dared ... but I decided to meet him.
He found a strong inspiration in the work of Jean Michel Basquiat.
The same reflections in his compositions, almost violent, with a cry to justice and cultural identity.
She has a bright future as a contemporary emerging artist.
Gazzambo Gallery welcomes you to this exhibition.
