BEYOND TIME

Iraqi painter and printmaker Rafa Nasiri is widely-known in the Arab world and beyond for his culturally rich artworks and elegant style. During the last decade, he has been inspired by poetry as varied as that of Al-Mutanabbi, Mahmoud Darwish and Etel Adnan. This poetic journey, coupled with a preoccupation with the element of time, has produced works that celebrate beauty, love and the homeland. Born in 1940, he studied painting and printmaking in Baghdad, Beijing and Lisbon.
