“Icons of War”

Paintings by

“These paintings describe the circumstances of war, and how war can change our human nature and awaken the instinct of murder inside us and turn our lives from brothers and friends to predatory enemies.

I am from a country that is still suffering from the war since 2011, and also from a Kurdish nation that still suffers from instability and wars.

For that reason, I try in my work to convey a sense of these

tragic stories.” Lukman Ahmad
