Heitham Adjina

Iraqi Dubai-based artist Heitham Adjina tackles the philosophical and aesthetic wonders of time, place and humanity through his poignant paintings rife with allegorical symbolism. An architect practising in Dubai, London and Baghdad for over 40 years, Through his paintings Adjina marries the structures that inhabit our world with the more subjective meanderings of human consciousness. Pivotal scenes evoking the meaning of life, love, family, poverty, despair and hope are revealed through works that delicately strike a balance between the individual human being and the edifices in which one dwells.
