Sudanese-born artist Yassir Ali Mohammed is a painter who trained in Khartoum and now lives and works in Nairobi. His practice is deeply engaged with the notion of a Sudanese visual identity. He explores the trajectory of ancient Nubian symbols from historical to contemporary visual culture, inspired by the universality of their shapes and formations, and how they have developed through time and across cultures.
