Born 1974 in Sudan
Lives and works in Egypt
Egyptian-born Sudanese artist. His Childhood was composed of two environments: the Cairene street and the Sudanese home. The relationship, and sometimes tension, between the two strongly influenced his view of both cultures. The need to express this dual perspective led him to make art initially and has informed his work since. Amado’s work discusses the relationship between the included and the excluded, and opens dialogue on issues of identity and politics, by working with forgotten historical events and current state policies.
