Samir Osman Shareef is a Sudanese Artist based in Khartoum, Sudan. translating heritage and exposition into artwork.
"My work casts a critical eye over Western civilization from the perspective of the African Diaspora. Visually enticing while evoking subtle sentiments, the images are careful examinations of social transformation and sensitive topics. I use a range of techniques to convey these ideas, from traditional oils, acrylics, and ink through to coffee for the depth of color and pigeon feathers for delicacy. My work is not premeditated, but rather evolves naturally over time and is often an overflowing of thoughts I find difficult to express in words. Through these pieces, I explore the concept of whether humanity is progressing or regressing. I try to examine just what society and culture have become in terms of class politics, warfare, sexism, and the media. I have observed South Sudan’s populace incessantly trying to emulate western fashions, behavior, and even the use of language".
