Google Doodle today, Saturday, April 23, 2022, paid a tribute to Naziha Salim and celebrated her contributions to the art world. "Today's Doodle artwork is an ode to Salim's painting style and a celebration of her long standing contributions to the art world!," Google said. It can be known that Naziha Salim was a painter, professor and one of the most influential artists in Iraq's contemporary art scene. Her work often depicts rural Iraqi women and peasant life through bold brush strokes and vivid colors. On this day in 2020, Naziha Salim was spotlighted by the Barjeel Art Foundation in their collection of female artists.

Giving details about Salim's family, Google said, "To paint the scene, Salim was born into a family of Iraqi artists in Turkey. Her father was a painter and her mother was a skilled embroidery artist. All three of her brothers worked in the arts, including Jawad, who's widely considered one of Iraq's most influential sculptors. From an early age she enjoyed making her own art."

In order to complete her graduation and study painting, Salim enrolled at the Baghdad Fine Arts Institute. She graduated with distinction. Because of her hard work and passion for art she was one of the first women awarded a scholarship to continue her education in Paris at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. While in Paris, Salim specialized in fresco and mural painting. After graduation, she spent several more years abroad, immersing herself in art and culture.

Salim eventually returned to Baghdad to work at the Fine Arts Institute where she would teach until retirement. She was active in Iraq's arts community and one of the founding members of Al-Ruwwad, a community of artists that study abroad and incorporate European art techniques into the Iraqi aesthetic. Later in her career, Salim authored Iraq: Contemporary Art, an important resource for the early development of Iraq's modern art movement.

Naziha Salim's artwork hangs at the Sharjah Art Museum and the Modern Art Iraqi Archive. You can see the magic she created from dripping brushes and brimmed canvases there.
