Walid Farouk_portrait.jpeg

Walid Farouk is a visual artist born and raised in Om Durman, Sudan, in 1976 from a Sudanese mother and an Egyptian father.

Instead of trying to resolve issues of identity and nationality, his artistic approach is to show what brings us together rather than what divides us and extracts what makes us human beings first and foremost.

Through his artwork, Walid Farouk seeks to trigger an appreciation of the differences while provoking reflection on the shared foundation of mankind.
