Yazidi youth Nasser H. Kassow protests through his art

Nasser H. Kassow's painting is a reflection of the genocide perpetuated on the Yazidis by ISIS
IRAQ---Yazidis believe that Yazdan, the Supreme Being, created the world and entrusted it to seven angels. And the Yazidis worship the fallen angel - Tawwus, or the Peacock Angel - as one of the seven angels. Recently, I came across a young Ezdi, Nasser H. Kassow from Shingal (Sinjar) who is a student of English at a University in Zakho. Kassow had tweeted some of his impressionistic paintings on the state of Yazidis. As we engaged on social media, I interviewed him via Skype to know a little more about his work. [link]
