Sudanese artist, Zainab Kamal: a digital exhibition.

Zainab Kamal is a Sudanese artist living in Cairo, Egypt. Her work is heavily inspired by the vibrance of nature both in colour and form.


زينب كمال فنانة سودانية تعيش في القاهرة. كثير من عملها الفني مستوحى من لوان وجمال الطبيعة.

Zainab believes that everyone knows that harmony with nature is important for a fulfilled life. In order to achieve such a harmony, she says, every individual must use their voice.

قالت: الكل يعلم ان التوازن البيئي مهم لحياة افضل ولتحقيق تلك الحياة كان الزاما على كل فرد ان يضع بصمته.

To go alongside her works, Zainab sent Louder Than The Storm this Arabic poem, which encapsulates the natural harmony she speaks about, evoking images of an intangible connection between our environment and our deepest thoughts.



وأرض زانها العشبُ حوت بحراً وأنهارا

وأشجاراً لنا ظل جنينا منها أثمارا

وعذب الماء من مطرٍ على الوديان قد سارَ الزرعَ ليسقي والبشرَ جواداً كان مدرارا

فلتك طبيعة غناء غدت للفكرِ أسرارا

The earth is adorned by grass, seas, rivers, and trees

which shade us and from which we harvest fruit How sweet is the rain water which flows on the valleys

Flowing to water the harvest

And man, on his steed, wandering around

The rhythm of nature nourishes our deepest thoughts




Words by Zainab Kamal, translated by Louder Than The Storm co-founder Aimée Lister
