Alan Abdulkader was born in Kurdistan, his areas of study lie between art, architecture, and writing. Currently, practice architecture in Seattle and teaches design and silver gelatin photography courses and soon will teach architecture fundamental as part of Green River College Fine Arts. Coming from a background steeped in political uncertainty and turmoil has impacted Alan's visual explorations and writings. Those moments have become visible in his art, writing, and part of his architecture where he regenerated the atrocities of Halabja and the political border of Kurdistan.
