Diyar Al Asadi is a Baghdad-born Iraqi artist who re-imagines the opulent visual tradition of Islamic art’s golden era through his innovative, contemporary and often provocative  renditions.

Diyar’s path from Baghdad to Phoenix is one that stretches over decade and half; three continents; a life-threatening and life-changi ng war; countless homes; and countless uncertain days and nights that mark the existence of any refugee. Despite all the adversities along his way,or maybe because of them,Diyar forms a very special bond with art and artistic expression – art becomes both his safety net but also his  main tool to reach out,interact with and understand the world that surrounds him.

In 2012,Diyar moves to the United States after receiving a scholarship to the prominent Art Students League of New York,and today,he calls Phoenix his home,his community,where he paints highly intricate,large-scale works that can take up to 2,300 hours to create.He likes to combine techniques of traditional Islamic art to show which represent his origin, with newer techniques from contemporary art which indicate where he is right now in his artistic journey.
