Presented by Fisher Art Gallery
Lukman Ahmad: Spotlight Acrylic on Canvas, features works by the self taught Kurdish artist Lukman Ahmad, who you can read more about below.
Gallery Hours: Monday - Friday
"Lukman is self-taught, someone who admires nature and its creatures. His work is focused on expressive cultures and its complexities. His body of artwork shows strong sense of Kurdish spirit and identity despite his people are with “no country and “no boarders.” His vivid colors and moving shapes artistically express his profound, personal connection to the Kurdish land and its people, with a history layered with tragedy, perseverance and aspirations. Ahmad’s imagination runs free as his style and paintings emphatically portray a swinging graceful dancer painted in colorful fluid shapes alongside a magical horse against a vast white background of nature. His works picture a proud cultural heritage that provides viewers a deeper understanding of the Kurdish people."
