Nuha Al-Radi

Nuha al-Radi trained at the Byam Shaw School of Art, and Chelsea Pottery College in London from 1961-1963, then went on to teach at the American University of Beirut, Lebanon from 1971-1975.
In 1990 she gave up ceramics and started painting and making sculptures from found objects. She produced many ceramic wall reliefs for the government and the private sector in Iraq. One exhibition, Embargo Art, held in Amman during the late 1990s, a period of Western sanctions against Iraq, consisted of “found objects” like old mufflers from cars, the kind of things Iraqis had to use to get by, she said. Al-Radi participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the Arab world, the u.k. and the u.s.a.
Nuha al-Radi died in Beirut, Lebanon in 2004.
