Adhamiya Wall Paintings?

BAGHDAD, al-ADHAMIYA: Several artists used the wall built around al-Adhamiya city by US forces as a canvas for their paintings. My grandfather will be proud.
Beautiful. and creative, I like it.
UPDATE:My gut insisted for a second that it was weird that those painting would spring up in the land of Baathies and al-Qaeda, who as I hear are killing people for sins such as wearing shorts or smoking cigarettes, what about drawing infidel art, anonymous dude commented here saying it's in Sa3doon Street, while his report is unverified it makes more common sense to me there than Adhamiya. Adhamiya is a rough neighborhood with a mentality that shuns art (and this kind of art is usually negliglble for most Iraqis anyway).

And again I am sorry for making you disappointed.

ha kid,
apart from many things: it strikes me that the people who are painting, sort of seem to be PART of the painting! it must be the light. [?]

Zeyad said...

Kid, these paintings are in Sa'doun Street, on the walls around Palestine Hotel and Baghdad Hotel.

The Ba'athists of Adhamiya have already condemned these paintings as infidel plot to get people used to concrete walls, and they threatened to kill anyone who attempts to paint the wall in Adhamiya. See Iraqi Rabita.

Wow... those artists are amazing.

I can't even draw a straight line with a ruler.

I've been made aware that most Iraqis are not exactly happy about the walls... I can't say I blame them one bit... but it is very nice to see the space being used for something worthwhile anyway.

Thanks for the heads-up. :-)

OK the paintings look great, but I still don't know what you feel and what is your openion about Al Adhamia Wall.

BlogIraqi said...

Its true Kid,
The paintings are in Sadoun St. You can see the second photo to make sure. The high building behind the wall. The Adhamiya wall does not surround such a high building.
And by the way, I read a comment in a "Sunni-Oriented" website about these painting, saying that these artists are paid by the government to make people fell better about the walls..!!
Its kind of silly to approach everything in a very biased look like the one in that ocmment.
Anyway, although I hate dividing Baghdad into a small pieces, if this is what it takes to make thing clam, I say do it.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting mmy own blog and was curious
what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart
so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Appreciate it
