Muayad Muhsin was born April 19, 1964 in Babylon, Iraq. He recalls becoming fascinated by color and line and beginning to draw at the age of 4. As a child, Muhsin saw the road between home and school as a heaven for studying my objects, the birds, the cats, our old couch, the school yard and the dumpster place. Frequently advised by others who did not understand the arts, Muhsin was told to leave drawing because it was no good and doesnt earn you money and to look for something else which can be used to fill the stomach.
