Ziyad Almashkhdami was born in Baghdad and now lives and works in Geneva.
In 1995 he graduated from the Fine-Arts Institute in Baghdad and has since presented his work in many group and solo exhibitions, the most recent at the UN in Geneva. He is a member of the International Federation of Artists.
Almashkhadami works in different genres of art such as abstract, expressionism and realism, in both painting and drawing. His art is redolent of Picasso’s female figures with their defined silhouettes.
In the abstract paintings there are recurring musical figures and the use of Arabian calligraphy, symbolic of the artist’s origin.
