Ramadhan Hamisi (born 1990) is a Tanzanian artist who is known for his hyper-realistic drawings of people. He currently lives and works within the capital city of Nairobi in Kenya. With a conceptual approach, Ramadhan seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. His drawings are distinguishable through his use of graphite, charcoal and pastel to radiate a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. He creates black and white works through labor-intensive processes. His art aims at depicting the inner soul and deep feeling in humanity that is not easily expressed using words. His drawings directly respond to the surrounding environment and he uses everyday experiences as a starting point. Often these are instances that would go unnoticed.
