Naar Published to accompany various exhibitions across America In this fully illustrated book of Basil Alkazzi's paintings, nature and the cosmos are transformed through intense color and incarnate shapes into a zone of dreams, longing, and the spirit - works of poetry as well as art. Raised in England where he attended art school, Basil Alkazzi has exhibited regularly in London and in the United States for over four decades and his work is in many of the major United States and European museums' collections. To support other artists, he established The Basil H. Alkazzi Foundation Awards at the Royal College of Art and The Basil H. Alkazzi Awards for Excellence at the New York Foundation for the Arts.
