He grew up in a traditional society. He moved to Bagdad in 1961, where he learned classic Arabic calligraphy. After arriving in Paris in 1969, he entered the "Ecole des Beaux-Arts"where he studied figurative painting. But he did not stop calligraphy altogether; to pay for his studies, he was doing headlines in calligraphy for Arabic magazines.
