Artist Statement of Sahar Zuher

Sahar Zuher received her Bachelor of Graphic Design from the Baghdad University of Fine Arts in 1998. Zuher is now a student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (lithography and etching).

She has participated in many successful exhibitions in Belgium, including six solo exhibitions. Her artistic substance is derived from the events that have taken place in her country throughout the ages. Iraq is one of the countries that have supplied the world with intellectual and scientific substance since the beginning of the Sumerian civilisation.

Her artistic creations explore the conflicts and the connections between human power, authorities and the rebellion led by the simple humans against the conflicts of life - encompassing the reality of contemporary human lives with all the material and social currents.
