Heba Almoula Saleh Iraq
About the Artist
Heba was born in Damascus in 1980 and graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts, at Damascus University in 2005. She attended the School of Arts Institute in Damascus. Heba participated in exhibits in Damascus, Beirut and Italy. Heba also had a solo exhibition at the Laboratoire d’Art in Beirut in 2012. She feels that painting chose her and not the other way around. She cannot imagine doing anything else, but is having a very hard time in Damascus right now, as no one is interested in buying art. More than anything, what makes her happy is being with people she loves when the relationship is based on simplicity and honesty. When she paints, she always feels like she is a bird that does not extend to the ground with her feet, but is isolated from everything around her. Heba currently lives in Damascus, Syria.
