Ali Omar Ermes: 5 Decades of Art and Ideas - Episode 1



In this episode, I share my experience with art spanning 5 decades starting from my first international solo exhibition in the Plymouth Art Museum in 1969 although my first exhibition was in my home country Libya at the Tripoli International Fair in 1965. I took part in over 70 solo and group exhibitions around the world in countries including the USA, Russia, South Korea, Australia, and the Middle East. You will also see examples of artwork, posters, and material produced for some of my exhibitions.
