The Summer Cover for
the MultiCultural Review
MultiCultural Review, an American academic
magazine, chose Amer Hanna Fatuhi’s artwork for its front cover in
its 2009 summer issue which featured Weam Namou’s article, “The
Concealed Gift of our Society: The United States Gives Iraqi Artists
a Voice,” proving that despite the threats and assaults made upon
it, the Iraqi culture keeps thriving.
The article featured five
prominent Iraqi-born artists, one of whom was Mr. Amer Fatuhi. The
painting, entitled Fleeing Paradise, is part of Fatuhi’s
upcoming art exhibition “Iraq … Love, Death, & Beyond.” Throughout
the years, Fatuhi has made great contributions to the continuous
revival of the Iraqi culture, while always paying homage to his
Chaldean (native Iraqi) heritage. No doubt he will continue to do
so in the future.
The other artists featured in
the article were Issa Hanna Dabish (1919-2009), Paul Batou, Nadwa
Qaragholi, and Farouk Kaspaules.
Congratulations to Mr. Amer
Hanna Fatuhi and special thanks for the artistry of the rest of the
Iraqi Artists Association / United States and
