The attached images are part of an ongoing collaboration between the artist and his father who is an expatriate living and working in Baghdad. The artist's father would send iPhone images of his surroundings, experiences, and nuances he felt the artist would be intrigued by. The cell phone images were received in emails often detailing the contents of the images, excerpts of which are superimposed on some of the images. The artist often felt the need to remove his father from certain situations or enhance them, expressed by painting the images.
The artist also travelled to Baghdad for a month, spending time with his father and documenting his experience both through his camera and through emails written to his mentor in New York.
Kamil Tyebally, 26 years old is Indian. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
