Hello. My name is Zaid. I’m 40 years old and I am from Iraq. I like learning about the news and politics. A lot of my art is very personal and about war. I hate war. I wish everyone could live in peace – that was the theme of my solo exhibition in 2019.

I also really like superheroes. I feature them in my art too. I have a special collection of hero figures at home. I’m a quiet and gentle person. I think a lot. I like music, especially the Beatles!
