I am a self-taught oil painter from Sulaimani, Iraq. I spend most of my life painting. I have painted with many methods and mediums; now my favorite is wet on wet Bob Ross Bill Alexander technique I live in Istanbul ,Turkey now because I faced many dangers in Iraq and barely escaped death many times because many foolish and criminal people there hate art and artists very much and do anything to force you to quit . I continued and will continue growing my Art. I lost many things in Iraq; even some of my paintings are still missing there and I donít know if they are still in existence or not but I won many great friends around the world who support me, I couldnít paint for 2 years, but I will begin again soon to tell those foolish people I am still alive and much stronger than any time before. In our nation, unfortunately, art is not peopleís priority. I face big challenges and difficulties because politicians dominate all aspects of our lives. There are no painting classes, galleries, buyers or support here, so I would very much appreciate your support and comments to continue to grow my talent and grow as an artist. Thank you for your visit, comments, suggestions and consideration of my art.
Best Regards ***
