Yassir Ali

 

Art can allow us to blend the past and the present.

Yassir is, originally, from Krima, Sudan, but moved to Nairobi in 2003 to dedicate himself to his art. Despite his separation from his home and his family, he incorporates Sudanese culture into his work. Specifically, Nubian culture, from motifs to colors to atmosphere, features prominently in his work. These classical symbols offer a refreshing contrast to the rising modernity in the region.
