What Alain Jouffroy said about Iraqi Artist Dia Azzawi

Relationship / Gouache on Paper / 1983

Iraqi Artist Dia Azzawi
"Through a body of work, which he has generously offered the world—work which is radical and cross-cultural, holding a multiplicity of existential and political meanings, at once tragic and joyful, making,life triumph over death and over obsession with death—Al-Azzawi is helping to create a new Arab civilization which will emerge one day from the present internal discords, misfortunes and suicidal follies."
Alain Jouffroy
