" Diyar Al Asadi is a Baghdad-born Iraqi artist who re-imagines the opulent visual tradition of Islamic art's golden era through his innovative, contemporary and often provocative renditions. Diyar's path from Baghdad to Phoenix is one that stretches over decade and half; three continents; a life-threatening and life-changing war; countless homes; and countless uncertain days and nights that mark the existence of any refugee. Despite all the adversities along his way, or maybe because of them, Diyar forms a very special bond with art and artistic expression - art becomes both his safety net but also his main tool to reach out, interact with and understand the world that surrounds him."

"A completely self-taught artist, Long Soldier works only with the materials of his own imagination. His work usually communicates a story about the ways and spiritual traditions of his people. A nephew of well-known Sioux artist Andrew Standing Soldier, Long Soldier learned to understand his culture from stories he heard from his uncles, grandfathers and father. Deeply rooted in the Lakota culture's spirituality, Long Soldier feels his talent is a gift from the Great Spirit."I like to say, He (The Great Spirit) does all the work, I just clean the brushes,” says Long Soldier. Long Soldier feels he must accomplish something with this talent during his lifetime to ensure a good journey into the other world."
