Introduction
Ibrahim El-Salahi (Arabic: إبراهيم الصلحي‎, born 5 September 1930, Omdurman, Sudan) is a Sudanese painter, former public servant and diplomat. He is one of the foremost visual artists of the Khartoum School of African Modernism and the Hurufiyya art movement, which sought to combine traditional forms of Islamic calligraphy with contemporary artworks. On the occasion of the Tate Modern gallery's first retrospective exhibition of a contemporary artist from Africa in 2013, El-Salahi's artistic work was characterized as "a new Sudanese visual vocabulary, which arose from his own pioneering integration of Islamic, African, Arab and Western artistic traditions."
