The artist attended the Gordon Memorial College which is now named the University of Khartoum. El- Salahi also attended the Slade School of Art located in London, England.

El- Salahi was the first African artist to have a retrospective at the Tate Museum of London, England. In this clip we visit the studio of El- Salahi:

Price range information: Sorry none available.

El- Salahi also worked as a politician and diplomat serving as his countries Director of Culture.

El- Salahi was one of the first artists to use Arabic calligraphy in work.

Tough to put this amazing artist in a category. My favorite part of his work is the way he portrays hair.
