I'm Victor, and I live in Norway. I'm an artist on a journey of creative exploration and innovation. I'm continuously working to breathe life into unique and captivating ideas
Within the realm of art and design, I am an architect of emotions, a master of color, and a storyteller through visuals. My expertise in color theory, concept development, trend analysis, and material selection allows me to craft experiences that transcend the ordinary.
A Way of Life
Art and design aren't just my professions; they are my way of life. They require a deep well of mindfulness and awareness, fueling my quest for self-expression and creative evolution. Over the years, I've honed my skills while collaborating with esteemed government institutions, pushing the boundaries of art forms.
My art exists as a reflection of the world that surrounds me, drawing inspiration from the exhilaration of taking risks to the serenity of embarking on new adventures. These experiences infuse my work with vitality, depth, and profound meaning.
I hail from the oldest and richest civilization in the world, the cradle of human history – Mesopotamia. It's the land of golden domes, enchanting legends, the realm of One Thousand and One Nights, the birthplace of the first letter written in history, the cuneiform letter. Mesopotamia is where the first obelisk in history and the first law code in history were created, the code of Hammurabi, the land where the goddess of love and beauty, Ishtar, graced life.
From these captivating roots and charming climates, my multifaceted talent is born, characterized by bold lines and vibrant, intense colors. Steady lines and the power of dynamic brush strokes further amplify its aesthetic value.
I hold a diploma in Fine Arts and a bachelor's degree from the University of Baghdad, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, alongside general recognition from Norway. My journey extends beyond academia, encompassing invaluable experience within governmental institutions, museums, fashion, and arts management.
