Born in Baghdad, Iraq, Musa’s childhood was spent mostly in war. Through his journey to Canada, art became a powerful vehicle to express his thoughts, feelings, longings and beliefs.
In his art, Musa creates a place for the soul to rest and contemplate… a place where time becomes still, pausing from the hustle of the surroundings to find a moment to meditate on the Creation and rejuvenate. Musa expresses light in radiant flood to surround and engulf the viewer so as to renew hope for the spirit and provide a pure contrast to the conflict and struggle of everyday life.
Musa’s work utilized different mediums including oils, encaustics, pastels and resins. He often created his own paints, pastels and supports to create the effects he strives to achieve.
