Hayv Kahraman. Iraqi Artist

Paintings by Hayv Kahraman. DanceDance


Iraqi artist Hayv Kahraman produces highly graphic drawings using Sumi ink on brown paper. Her wide stylistic references range from Japanese and Arabic calligraphy art nouveau, Persian miniature and Greek iconography.
Her impeccable illustrative renderings create stunning but also unsettling, minutely detailed images which prevent us from looking away from tragedies such as rape and honour killings, forcing us to reflect on things that we would otherwise refuse to see.
Of late, Kahraman has moved on to work in a larger scale and on canvas, painting flat patterned areas contrasted with expressionless faces, highly rendered in Renaissance inspired techniques. The artist has turned her attention to more mundane forms of oppression in a series of works focused on the ways women are percieved in society.
