The painter and poet Ali Rashid was born in Iraq, but he has lived in Holland since 1994. He successfully completed his art studies in Iraq and Holland at the Art Academy. In addition to exhibitions in Iraq and Holland, he has shown work in various countries including Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Spain, Egypt, and Japan. In his work, he tries to link his personal memories with the course of general history: memories from Iraq, the people there, his youth, his years during the war, the oppression, and the poverty. By taking his memories as starting points for his work and placing them in a broader perspective, he tries to take responsibility as an artist for the world around him. During his time in Holland, he has also looked for links between East and West. His work is strong but also poetic. As painter and poet, he looks for methods to join lines with letters. This fascination finds its origin in the time of the war when poems (written from left to right as well as from right to left) were a matter of life and death.
