11 March-4 April 2006. Work by Sudanese artists Salah Ammar and Hassan Fadoul Abbakar is on show at the Rahimtulla Museum of Modern Art (RaMoMa) gallery in Nairobi. Basing his work on nature, Khartoum-born watercolourist Ammar captures the unpredictability of life in Africa, while Abbakar draws on the cultural experiences of his childhood to present what he describes its happier side. There is enough bad news from Africa, yet Africa is more than the civil wars and hunger that people often see, the 39-year-old artist from Sudans Al-Jazira province told Kenyas The Nation. Both artists offer an insight into the day-to-day life of ordinary people in Sudan and in Africa in general. Launched in January 2001, RaMoMa is one of Kenyas leading exhibition spaces for contemporary African art.
