Watch part two

This week on One on One we meet the Iraqi-born artist Ahmed Alsoudani, who talks about how an act of graffiti forced him to leave his family and the country of his birth, Iraq. 

Defacing a mural of Saddam Hussein put his life in danger and led to a journey that took him to the US.

Never planning his career, his exceptional talents as an artist have put his works in high demand. Addressing important social issues and the impact of war, he wants viewers to have a conversation with his paintings and to uncover more layers the longer they look at it. 

This episode of One on One can be seen from Saturday, January 23, at the following times GMT: Saturday: 0130, 1630; Sunday: 0430; Monday: 0300, 1230.
