I am not Assyrian or Chaldean or Akkadian.
I am not a Christian or Muslim or Buddhist.
I am human.
I was born in Mesopotamia, Uruk, Nippur, Shuruppak, and Sippar.
I was born in Babylon, home of Anu and Ishtar.
I am a son of Enlil , Shamash, and Gilgamesh.


I am a son of Ishtar, Ea, and Nunsun.
I was killed once by a flood,
And a million times by a creature,
Called human,
Called a country.
I was killed by a nation,
Or United Nations.

My last thoughts about Iraq
Paulbatou.com

Biography:
I am  a native Iraqi artist .A 1982 pharmaceutical graduate of the university of Baghdad , But my most enduring interest remained the world of art . I did not bother to apply for the art school in Baghdad because the school was closed to the baathist party members only “the government “ . while in pharmacy school I was inspired by many teachers and artists. My first art show in Baghdad was in 1980 , opening a door that would lead my work to be featured in several galleries , later in 1982 I was forced to work as a pharmacist and a medic during the Iran-Iraq war for five years in the army , when it ended in 1989 , I left Iraq with my family and moved from Athens to Los Angeles. Here in the state I continue to create Art and write poems and recently I published my first book in 2007 “My last thoughts about Iraq” which I shared the Iraqi’s thinking and thoughts during the long years of war , Sanction the  fall of the great civilization of Mesopotamia .I am one artist among many. My colors are united in one piece of art ,reflecting the tone of the earth , the language of the universe , the cry and pain of the oppressed people. On my canvas , the black  , red and white are in harmony just like my soul . I would love all people to achieve that kind of unity .
