Born in 1983 in Sidi Bouzid, Slimen Elkamel is a young visual artist and an extensively published art critic for newspapers, publications and art catalogues. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions across his native Tunisia, including the Spring of the Arts since 2009, as well as in the United Arab Emirates. In 2011 he held a solo exhibition at Artyshow gallery in El Marsa. Elkamel was an art resident at the Living Arts Centre at Rades in 2010 and paid multiple artistic and research visits to Paris, Algeria and Bahrain. He has also been involved in theatre in the field of scenography and creative direction. Elkamel has spoken of the spontaneous way that the Tunisian revolution, in which he was an active participant, has infiltrated his work, which, he says, questions social constraints and the absurdity of violence. He has an MA in Visual Arts, specialising in Painting and in Techniques of Science and Art. In 2010 he began his PhD thesis at the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts of Tunis. He currently teaches at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts of Sousse.
