About the facilitator:
"I draw on memories of my home city and cultural background and reflect its beauty in my paintings." Hussein
Hussein Ali Zobea was born in Iraq on 17 April 1955. He graduated from Bagdad Art University in 1979 and went on to become a visual art teacher at a tertiary level.
Hussein draws on personal memories of his home city and cultural background to inform his large scale paintings. War and the situation in Iraq have changed his view and feelings about the beautiful city which was his former home, to the present, where he tries to remember the culture in its beauty through his painting. Hussein draws inspiration from his love of Indigenous arts and experiments with a combination of styles to create unique artworks that represent his life both in Iraq and Australia.
