Afifa Aleiby


    Name: Afifa Aleiby
    Category: Painter
    Period: Seventies

    Afifa Aleiby was born in Basra-Iraq . She has lived and studied
    in Moscow and as a result the influence of the Soviet Realism
    filters through to an extent . However , her more recent works
    are intrinsically akin to unearthly metaphysics and narrative
    enchantment . The use of the palette tending toward bleu tones
    eliminates any sense of pedestrian descriptiveness . Her female
    figures in tunics like royal robes have a dignified pride and
    the air of an Oriental fable .A deliberate ingeniousness gives
    them an intriguing appearance of wonder and irony .
