Bahir Al Badry

Bahir Al Badry is an Iraqi artist, currently living in Harrisonburg, Va. He started his career as an artist in 1979., while working as a marine engineer. His overseas travels have been an inspiration for his art and he has explored themes of justice, freedom and existence. In his work, he utilizes elements of totem art and focuses on humanity, peace, love and freedom – elements of life that he feels he was deprived of in Iraq. He also focuses on current issues, such as climate change.

Through art he expresses a need to resolve the issues of mankind, while also exploring the cultural aspects of his birthplace and of ancient Mesopotamia, a culture which he believes is heavily engraved in his identity.

Bahir recently opened his studio, upstairs at OASIS. He is there most days and enjoys showing visitors his studio and his art. Do plan a visit!
