WESTERN WORLD, SAY HELLO TO THE EAST.

WORK IN PROGRESS 

Im really excited about this new project I am working on. I am excited because it involves two of my favorite things!  PAINTING AND FABRICS! Everyone who knows me, knows that I am OBSESSED with unique fabrics. I've always always always had such a love for fabric. Being Kurdish and living in Nashville I've been exposed to glamorous pieces of fabrics my whole life. I've noticed that we wear a lot of Kurdish clothes here in Nashville because we have such a huge Kurdish population.... which means we have parties/weddings almost every weekend. I love the fact that we Kurds in America have stuck to our traditional Kurdish dresses for weddings and events. WE HAVE A RICH CULTURE.... IT DOESNT MATTER WHERE WE ARE REALLY. ITS IN OUR BLOOD. Kurdish clothes are absolutely stunning. You can literally go pick out any pieces of fabric and turn it into a Kurdish dress. I always try to get extra fabric so that I can use the leftovers from the Kurdish clothes and turn them into jackets that I can wear with my regular clothes.  I'll be posting pictures/information about Kurdish outfits and I'm looking forward to combing these two passions of mine together.  I'll be making a series of these paintings using different kinds of fabrics that I've collected over the years.
