Artist statement
"I am working mainly with acrylic on canvas and the recent years also mixed media collage. My motifs are usually from the middle east, mostly Iraq. Most of the work center around people in context to the society.

Contrast is an important visual element both in topic and as a visual element. These elements are used to discuss the topics of cultural identity and affiliation."
