Mariwan Karim

Mixed media artist whose works reflects elements and stories from daily life and mirrors his Kurdish traditional and Status quo Mariwan artwork takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. Often referencing a back home history, my work explores the varying relationships between subject matter, environment. Having engaged subjects as diverse as the daily live and Confrontational, my work reproduces familiar visual and design signs, arranging them into new conceptually layered installations. While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns and through the subject matter. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.
