Artist Statement

I will always be learning and exchanging with other great Artists. The cultural diversity of my heritage is the basic for my way of artistic expression, like the “Baghdad Blues” photo & painting series, presenting simple scenes from Baghdad’s life in a special atmosphere. As well as the abstract series “Shelter ” which symbolize a protective shell from threatening outside influences.

Series Statement

There is always an abstract roof or a hut form in each work from this series surrounded by an uneasy weather, and sometimes a protective mountain can be seen behind the shelter.
This Series I have been doing since 2009 represents a Roof which can be a roof of a house, hut, temple, church, mosque or anywhere where our souls can find a shelter from the storms of our everyday life.
