Mard Issa’s art classes offer individual instruction/correction at all levels!



Mard Issa studied art in Iraq at the Fine Arts Academy of Baghdad, in Italy with Prof. Lorenzo Accorsi, and in Norge at the Art Academy in Bergen (KiB) and with Prof. Jan Valentin Sæther i Oslo. His style is a balanced blending of neo-romanticism, realism and surrealism.


Beside his own artistic practice, Mard Issa has been teaching art for 14 years.Students benefit directly from his long experienceand knowledge of art, developingtheir own skills at their ownpace, with reference to their own backgrounds and interests, and with proper instructions needed and desired.

Several of the Issa’s students have gone on to the Florence Academy of Art in Gothenburg or Italy, and others have gone to more intensive and specialized studies with Jan V. Sæther.

Mard Issa regularly holds exhibitions in which all of his sutdents can show their work. Many of Mard Issa’s students have in this way had their first showing in a group exhibition.
