Zidoun-Bossuyt Gallery is pleased to present the first exhibition of American artist Khalif Tahir Thompson in Dubai.
Khalif Tahir Thompson is best recognized for his powerful work concentred in portraiture and figuration. Incorporating painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, and paper-making into his practice, he explores notions of self through race, sexuality, and spirituality.
Recently he graduated from Purchase College with his Bachelors in Fine arts degree and completed a fellowship at the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in NYC, the Vermont Studio Center, and the Jerome Emerging Artist residency at The Anderson Center. He was selected as a member of Kehinde Wiley’s Black Rock Senegal residency in 2022. Thompson is currently at The Yale School of Art pursuing his MFA in Painting/ Printmaking.
