Ali Jabbar was born in Iraq in 1963. Determined to make his name as a professional artist, he committed eight years to the study; first in the Institute of Fine Arts, then in the Academy of Fine Arts in Baghdad.
In 1992 Jabbar moved to Denmark where he continued to practice as a painter and sculptor. 2002 was successfully marked by the artist's graduation from the Graphic Design School in Copenhagen. Thereafter he started to make his living as a designer, producing artist's catalogues, illustrations and a number of independent projects. The most highly regarded of Jabbar's graphic projects is a series of minimalist illustrations of public figures. The images of the celebrities and famous politicians were reduced to shapes and colours, but still remained recognisable.
