If you live in Stockholm Sweden or even if you visit the nymph of Scandinavia between the 20th of May and 1st of June don’t miss EU-MAN’s art exhibition in Hallunda Folkets Hus.
Stockholm is a world known city of tolerance and acceptance and the Scandinavian centre of artistic expression, the perfect place for the European Union Migrant Artists’ Network (EU-MAN) to present the biggest gathering of immigrant and guest artists in its history. 35 artists, most immigrants living in Europe adjoined with a number of fellow artists from Egypt, Morocco, Palestine, Kuwait and Iraq.
A celebration of colours and techniques balancing from the desert starfull nights to the Scandinavian gothic winters. 35 artists, over 70 works.
Behind this artistic marvel is one man, Amir Khatib. An artist and immigrant from Iraq who 22 years ago while looking for his place in the artistic mainstream of his host country, Finland, founded an organization that could unite and empower immigrant artists from all around Europe. EU-MAN was the first European Cultural Network found and established in Finland and despite all the constant obstacles (mostly from a hostile state) thrives and evolutes year after year.
Amir Khatib’s love and dedication to art and artists, has given a series of exhibitions all around Europe, from London to Helsinki, participation in art workshops in Finland, Turkey and Egypt and the establishment of a permanent exhibition place (EU-MAN gallery) in Helsinki Finland.
On top of that and under Mr Khatib’s supervision, the organization publishes the magazine Universal Colours, promoting art and artists, always introducing the work of artists partipicipating in EU-MAN.You can download all the issues of the magazine HERE!
