_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.
