Touches of Mesopotamia

Touches of Mesopotamia

A group exhibition by The Mesopotamia Visual Arts Society

Touches of Mesopotamia

Mesopotamia Visual Arts Society was founded in the Broadmeadows area in 2014.

The group is made up of artists from Iraq, who immigrated to Australia to begin new lives.

The artists of the MVAS come from varied academic backgrounds; some who have completed university degrees in Fine Art, some who are currently studying and some who simply follow an innate passion for art.

The binding force of the group is the act of sharing artistic skill and creativity, to strengthen their commitment to art and give life a new smile filled with beauty and vitality. The MVAS promotes art as a humanitarian message that renews in us our love of life.

This exhibition demonstrates the breadth of skill and approach within the artists of the MVAS. It offers a taste of visual art originating from the area formally known as Mestopotamia (now incorporating modern-day Iraq, Syria and Kuwait). Throughout this collection of work there are many references to elements of Mesopotamian history and tradition, as well as contemporary life and the issues that this troubled region currently faces.
