Notes


Piers Secunda was born in London in 1976 and studied painting at Chelsea College of Art in London.

Piers’ works examines some of the most significant subjects of our time, such as the deliberate

destruction of culture in war time, with a particular focus since 2015 on ISIS in Iraq. His recent works

have been made with damage moulded in the Mosul Museum shortly after it’s liberation in 2018,

with the help of the Iraqi Ministry of Culture. In 2018 an exhibition of Piers’ work was used as a

diplomatic tool, to create ties between the Iraq Kurdish authorities and the Iraqi Mission to London.

These two groups had been at war in the Autumn of 2017.
