My Word

– I come from an artistic family, my father, may God have mercy on him, is a plastic artist, and my mother has an artistic taste, which is why I grew up in a house full of colors, tools and paintings. The school fairs that are held annually, as well as in the middle and preparatory stages, were of great importance to my participation and my drawings.

I graduated from the College of Fine Arts in 1994, that college frequented by Iraq’s top artists, from professors to students to visitors, and being present in the activities and celebrations held by the college, as it was a permanent artistic workshop throughout the year, as a result of that I graduated with passion, determination and learning Learn everything related to drawing.
