Mohammad Omar Khalil (b1936) is one of the most significant artists of his generation from Sudan and the Arab world.

Mohammad Omar Khalil is a painter, master printmaker and mentor and has been practicing since the 1960s. A long overdue celebration of his life’s work, Homeland Under My Nails is the first major UK solo exhibition of his work.

Featuring a series of self-portraits, archival materials from the artist’s studio as well as etchings that explore Omar Khalil as a collector of sounds, this exhibition offers the opportunity to encounter the practice of this modernist artist whose drive to create continues today. His work is significant to the Arab modernist movement and to the history of International Modernism.
