Vlog #23: A glimpse of Iraqi art

7 Apr, '06

Visiting art galleries is mostly a good (and new) experience for me and last night’s visit to Albareh Gallery to view the creations of Ahmed Al-Bahrani did not disappoint. It was the last night for the exhibition, so it was pretty fortunate that I actually took the brief time to visit, just before joining my fellow bloggers for our 17th bloggers’ gathering.

Mr. Al-Bahrani’s work is amazing, and very painstaking to say the least, with great attention to detail as you will see from the following vlog, with excellent technical discipline and more importantly truck-loads of creativity.

I envy whoever buys any piece from his exhibit; they will treasure it for life and get a lot of enjoyment just for looking at it once in a while, regardless of whatever brainfarts the grand mufti explodes out of his blessed mouth.

    As much as I like the work, my question is a bit unrelated.

    Would you know the name of the song/artist being played in the background???

    I loved it!

    Dee, you have to watch the vlog again as I mention specifically that right at the end!

    Sneaky that, isn’t it?!

    Oh, okay then: it’s Redemption by Conjure One.
