Reality and Fiction

Nidal Elia, who specializes in fine arts and painting, says that it is dazzling to see a painter from Iraq presenting his paintings in a new and distinct style, using hair as basic material. This prompted her to contemplate his paintings in which he mixed reality with imagination to give pictures as if they were real, making the viewer live with his paintings and pictures of imagination intertwined with reality.
