As an artist, Khalid Wahal is constently seaking for ways to connect his personal history to the common one. His work is based on a deep phylosophical reflexion that connects Art to Existence.

Memories from Iraq, the country where he was born, the people, the history, his youth. By taking memory as an archive and starting point for his art he tries to take responsibility as an artist for the world around him.  He uses these archives as the start of his work and he tries to place them in a wider perspective.

 fist I search for those memories which are common, then I try to connect them with the world today, with my daily life and the world around me. Only then layers of meanings can develop within my work “.
