Iman Ali Khaled-Freedom to the Modern Perspective!

    Schilderij Iman Ali Khaled            Zelfportret Iman Ali Khaled
Artist Iman Ali Khaled, trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Baghdad, gained after her flight from Iraq, in the Netherlands with her transverse thinking her urge for freedom and modernity.
Her paintings are as mix of arabesque and contemporary Western art movements, powerful reflections ‘ Silent Thunders ‘ between her Iraqi-Kurdish past and dream images of her free Western life in the Netherlands.”The difference between my autonomous work of then and now, is that I now have more research and more experiment in making a colourful and powerful imagery. Subjects as freedom were then in Iraq in contrast to here a taboo and dangerous. That has made me stronger as a person and as an artist in my work “.
” Often I paint with my hands to get all digging in the sand of my past new sculptures on canvas of my free present “

Religion as a market, believers as shopping consumers! Peer to peer!


‘Fishing stories’-Painting Leo Wijnhoven Cartoon-Trouw 19 februari 2015
Mohammed and Jesus their own glossy!
But ‘Charity Galas Imans’ nearly a step too far! (Hate does not sell yet in the free market)

Is this, after Crusades and Jihad to the truth of their gods and prophets, for Christians and Muslims the start-up for their innovation / modernization / relativisation of their source and for freedom in the choice of their faith?

Religious believers as consumers of products, perhaps as shareholders with participation on the most cost effective sales pitch?

Mass communication, advertising and the market-based ‘ customer friendly ‘ sales techniques will tolerate misleading information but lies will inexorably be punished!

From Nike to Adidas ‘, from Christian to Muslim and vica versa. ‘Peer to peer’ competitive communication based on equality!

The shopping believer switching to the best and most free.

Almost everywhere around the world, regardless of political ideology or thought, art and culture are connected to general shared values of freedom, autonomy, equality and self-fulfillment. The stark contrast with those countries and cultures where nowadays the free access to and dissemination of modern art still is perceived as a threat, requires  us in these times of crisis, globalization and migration, to pay attention to and reflect upon the relation between (modern) art, the individual, society and the concept of freedom.

Assassins of free speech thrive best under people who are hypersensitive, says Youssef Azghari, author of my Jihad.

The murder of the twelve Frenchmen, among whom the cartoonists of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that the Prophet Mohammed cast doubt on names regularly, is not only an attack on the freedom of expression but also an attack on all Muslims
