‪‘Echo’ is the title of the latest collection of paintings by exceptionally gifted artist Hassaan Ali currently on show at Grant gallery. ‬

‪Ahmed is a Sudanese visual artist whose paintings are like almost no other. Enchanted by the world of colouring and experiments on smooth surfaces, Ali chose to leave his job voluntarily, to devote himself to the world of art and creativity without any regret over the job he abandoned. He is constantly searching for the wide, open space of freedom, free all limits or restrictions that may imprison the artist in him and restrict his creativity. ‬

‪Ali has held several exhibitions in Cairo at Grant, Mashrabia‬
‪ and Picasso galleries, and the Cairo Opera House exhibition hall. He also participated in collective exhibitions abroad, including Orlando Museum in the US, the African Cultural Centre in Germany and in Spain, Sudan and Japan. ‬

‪He was awarded the NOMA prize for paintings in children’s books from Japan. This is in addition to the Excellence Award from the Cairo ‬
‪Biennale in 2007.‬

‪Ahmed received a BA in Economics and Political Science from the University of Khartoum in 1977.‬

‪The exhibition ends 3 March‬
