With a commitment to considering the sociopolitical dimensions of historical and contemporary iconography, Slimen Elkamel’s works present multiple experiences of lived reality. His more recent work considers the links between the human body and everyday consumable objects. Opening up its social and communicative parameters, Elkamel considers the ways in which virtual and lived reality hinge upon visual and auditory channels of communication. The artist is also active as an art critic.

Elkamel holds a Masters in painting from the Tunis Institute of Fine Arts. He participated in numerous group exhibitions and held a solo exhibition. Elkamel was an art resident at the Living Arts Center at Rades and paid multiple artistic and research visits to Paris, Algeria, and Bahrain.
