Amel Bashier
(1981-) 

Sudanese painter and Illustrator , lives and works in France
Femininity is very important in my work. Women are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for artists, especially for poets and painters. I represent women without prejudice. They embody ambivalent feelings such as strength and weakness, cruelty and compassion. The women I paint are at the peak of femininity, they often evoke motherhood.
My influences are multi-cultural, however, I like to give an important place to the Kingdom of Nubia. These are my origins. The women of the Nuba tribe in northern Sudan still practice certain rituals that have meaning for me and my art.
I paint mainly in black and white because I feel that these colors show my impatience when I work, but also a natural beauty and simplicity.
