Mehdi Moutashar in 'UNVANQUISHED: Iraq’s art under two decades of occupation' on ARTFORUM

Amin Alsaden, Artforum

"Among those who went into exile, and who have had remarkable careers despite the odds, is Mehdi Moutashar (b. 1943), based in Arles, France. A friend and mentee of Al Said’s, Moutashar started with drawings and prints in the ’60s and moved increasingly toward three-dimensional—even, in recent years, monumental—work."
