Shaker is the son of prominent ceramicist Saad Shaker (b. Baghdad, 1935-2005) and immigrated to Phoenix, Arizona in 2005, where he lives and works today. Regarding the work he will be exhibiting at Meem, he states:” I use form and perceived mass as a metaphor of not only my own journey as an Iraqi artist, but as the journey of my father country which I saw in flames”.
