“Amado Alfadni is a Sudanese artist who spent his childhood between the two environments of the Cairene streets and his Sudanese home. The relationship, and sometimes tension, between the two strongly influenced his view of both cultures. The need to express this dual perspective led him to make art initially and has informed his work since. He draws on the character of the city for inspiration, using motifs and textures found in junk markets, antique shops, old and modern advertising, and ancient monuments. His images are rooted in place but not in time, often incorporating ancient, historical, and modern elements at once. This juxtaposition, in addition to exploring the diverse composition of the city, often leads to an exploration of confrontation of or conflict with the other.”
