Iraqi art is a field of study that has been marginalized and misrepresented by scholars and western art institutions. Since the American-led occupation of Iraq in 2003, however, scholars and curators have shown an increased amount of interest in exhibiting the works of artists from Iraq. Resulting from both the limited amount of scholarly research on their art and from a western tendency to categorize a people in terms of nationality, Iraqi artists are now being carelessly grouped into easy and inaccurate

classifications. To illustrate the fallacies of this new categorical trend, this paper analyzes the art and lives of three Iraqi artists, Hana Mal Allah, Adel Abidin and Wafaa Bilal.
