Kwaish Alfraji was inspired to combine his love of philosophy and poetry with expressionism. A frequently recurring theme is existentialism, which often results in vulnerable faceless dark figures. He was born in Iraq under the regime of Sadam Hussein's. Nowadays he lives and works in Amersfoort the Netherlands. His works are all over the world in musea and with galeries. Sadik is an Iraqi multi-media artist, photographer, animator, video producer and installation artist noted for producing "existentialist" works with dark, shadowy figures that speak of human frailty.
