Expressions of growth and healing from a former propaganda painter

EXHIBITIONS: SAVE OUR FISH FROM DROWNING

18 Feb 2017 - 23 Apr 2017 | 10.00am - 5.00pm

Hedar Abadi’s solo exhibition, Save Our Fish From Drowning, encapsulates the artist’s entrancing and well-versed artistic skill that is equally as fascinating and engaging as his lived-experiences. Abadi references the open social context of his new home in Liverpool after fleeing war-torn Iraq where he lived, trained and worked as a propaganda painter during the authoritarian reign of Saddam Hussein.

As the winner of the 19th Liverpool Art Society Exhibition Scholarship Prize in 2016, Abadi received $1,500 and an opportunity to show his works in a dedicated Marsden Gallery exhibition in 2017.
