Long Journey, Short Life


Iraqi artist Ausama al Khalil, was a distinguished designer and painter. He was also a survivor of torture, which left him with severe pain and disability. His beautiful collection offers a unique perspective on the trials and tribulations of refugees and asylum seekers, escaping from war and civil unrest.

Ausama worked in a number of mediums, creating abstract and modern realist pieces and held exhibitions of his work throughout Iraq and Jordan as well as in England.
Over 30 of his paintings will be available in an on-line and live auction at the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art. For more info please contact at snierhoff@freedomfromtorture.org
