My name is Bashir Midoun originally from Algeria living in Ireland sense 1994
: I put it this way ! painting saved my life, because I was living in the past for a long time, but painting teach me to stay here and now, since I was a child the only thing I loved to do is draw and paint and that my only place I found peace and harmony for my self from the violence and the insensitive world. I run a way from the civil war in 1992 I was only 22 years of age, now I am still in Ireland. From Algiers to Ireland since, I wasn't well from all what I witnessed, bad memories made me forget painting for long time, but then I came back painting 10 years a go and I had four exhibitions in Ireland, so I am very happy that painting saved my life, that means a lot to me. I hope you love my paintings like I do, thank you .
