Walid Farouk is  a visual artist born in 1976 in Om Durman, Sudan to a Sudanese mother and an Egyptian father.

Based in Istanbul since 2015, its  artistic practice moved from painting to mixed media and photography.

Instead of trying to solve problems of identity and nationality, his artistic approach is to show what brings us together rather than what divides us and highlight what makes us human beings first and foremost. .

Through his works, Walid  seeks to raise awareness of differences while encouraging reflection on the common foundations of humanity.
