The artist Mahmud Mohammed Salih, nicknamed "Van Koch Kurdish" since early morning, he goes fastly in the middle of the city wearing his hat and his bag and brushes for the coffee shop to start his new day with a plaque decorating the eyes.


He said: "I love painting with plastic art from a young age. I hoped to complete my studies at the Institute of Arts, but I could not, because of my meager possessions, I get up every morning to this heritage place, putting up paintings, colors and brush," and "I started sketching things with my note or artistic and cultural figures to meet the needs of life."
