The Kur­dish Painter Ad­nan Shino

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Ashti Garmiyani

The Kur­dish painter Ad­nan Shino was born in 1963 in Amedi, Duhok. Af­ter com­plet­ing in­ter­me­di­ate school, he headed to Suleimanya to con­tinue his stud­ies in the In­sti­tu­tion of Fine of Arts. Ad­nan was my class­mate. I learned a lot about him dur­ing those five years to­gether. He has an ex­cep­tional tal­ent when it comes to paint­ing and mix­ing colors. He is al­ways try­ing to re­new him­self, de­velop his tech­nique and ac­quire new ex­pe­ri­ence. Shino has ac­tively par­tic­i­pated in many public and per­sonal ex­hi­bi­tions in Kur­dis­tan. He has a very wide mind­set of fol­low­ing Kur­dish fic­tions, sto­ries and nov­els as mo­tifs for his works. The Kur­dish cul­ture is clearly re­flected in his pic­tures. This has given a spe­cial qual­ity to his draw­ings, paint­ings, the por­traits and the ex­pres­sive faces in his paint­ings.

Shino’s ac­tiv­i­ties were not limited to Kur­dis­tan alone, but in 1995 he found him­self in Ber­lin. The city of the Europe- an mod­ern art be­comes a sphere where Shino could open many ex­hi­bi­tions there. Ad­nan Shino’s art re­flects the tragic ex­is­tence and the con­texts of the Kurds re­al­ity which is full of catas­tro­phes and im­por­tant events. The artist also was in­spired by the myths and folk saga in the Kur­dish cul­ture. To show his works to a wider au­di­ence, Shino held many ex­hi­bi­tions in Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries like Den­mark, Fin­land, Swe­den, and Nor­way. In 2004, Shino de­cided to open an ex­hi­bi­tion in Kur­dis­tan's three Prov­inces again to dis­play his lat­est prod­ucts. This was a great suc­cess for Ad­nan Shino. Love in the lan­guage of art for Shino is a big and mean­ing­ful world, there­fore, dreams and love have given him that mean­ing to record it and frame it in eter­nal paint­ings.
