I was on AlJazeera’s episode of “The Stream” alongside a handful of interesting Iraqis discussing “Iraqi Youth on the Rise”
Enjoy the discussion, we only skim the surface given the time limit!
Download two of my hi-res PDF posters, print them on A3 and paste them where you can to spread awareness on the 10th anniversary since the invasion of Iraq. This poster project was initiated by shakomako.net
I was recently interviewed about my work and art for shakomako.net’s relaunch in commemoration of the #10years since the invasion of Iraq. Click the link and enjoy the article and browsing the website.
Just published my latest written piece on @jadaliyya, “Herstory repeats itself”. Its part of an interesting series of articles called Visuals in 1500.
“Visuals in 1500 is an ongoing series that invites critics, curators, scholars, and artists to utilize a single work of art as a starting point for a larger discussion on aesthetics. In 1500 words or less, these profiles introduce readers to a variety of artists and cultural practitioners and the many trajectories, creative and otherwise, that they are currently exploring.”

Peace and happy reading!
