The artists have been witnessing the rich European culture and experience since the eighties and have been able to present the world the Kurdish art and identity to the world and Europeans’ artists and intellectuals.
Hussein Kaky, an artist from Southern Kurdistan known as Khalil Kakayi who has been practicing art in Kirkuk since the sixties, is now doing his work in the heart of Europe, Belgium.
