This exhibition will be Steve Mumford's fifth at Postmasters and it consists of 2 distinct groups of paintings; the large scale heroic figurative ones and the graffiti based text works. Steve new paintings continue to investigate the war in Iraq, based on his experiences from 6 trips to Iraq between 2003 and 2008. During that time Steve emailed his sketches to Artnet.com, which became visual record of his experiences in a series of 16 articles titled Baghdad Journal, An artist in Occupied Iraq.
