Profile

I was born in Dar es Salaam on September 28th 1998. Most of my work focuses on creating original oil paintings. I am otherwise interested in cultural matters which I address in my paintings. Colour is a central element in my work where I combine strong colour combinations, African art patterns and designs. I mostly use oil on canvas but I can use different media and styles for any commissioned work, from wall murals to portraits and any kind of designing. I also do a little bit of jewellery design and fashion work. I hope you like my work and that it means something to you also. Contact me to purchase a painting or submit a commission if you have some thing specific in mind.

Kind regards,

Neema Salum
