_SOUTH SUDAN DENG MAJID CHOL

Deng Majid Chol was born in 1982 in Abyei in South Sudan. He lives and works in Juba.

 

He is a self-taught artist, painter and illustrator. In 2011, he worked on Michelle D’Arcy’s children’s book What will you do for our new nation?

 

His artistic research is colorful and symbolic, and revolves around themes of human activity and how it is influenced by cultural heritage and tradition. He is predominantly inspired by traditions, beliefs, and the customs and habits of the Dinka people, an agri-pastoral ethnic group living in South Sudan.

 

He has participated in several exhibitions and artists’ workshops in Kenya, Sudan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Uganda and South Sudan, including the Institut français of Juba in 2014.

As you know, the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide. After Asia, Europe and the American continent, the African continent sees the Covid19 epidemic coming with great concern, given the limited health infrastructures available in some countries.

 

All the AAD teams wish to give their warm support to the artists, professionals, partners and volunteers involved in our projects throughout Africa.

 

We have preventively taken the decision to temporarily suspend all our activities in the field in order to participate in the security of all and to try stop the spread of the virus on the continent.

 

As we know today, the speed of implementation of measures to protect people on a collective scale is critical in the future fight against the impact of this virus.

 

In these times of containment, you can find some of our projects and keep in touch on :
