Qatar's victorious bid to host the 2022 football world cup has put the tiny gulf state on the map.

And now the international art world has travelled to the capital Doha for the opening of a new museum of modern Arab art.

The works on display include those of an Iraqi artist, who has come up with a unique way of chronicling every moment of his life.
