The museum itself is a work of modern art, with is bare concrete floor, randomly angled walls and the slits of light coming through tall windows, etching the floor like laser beams-a perfect setting for Ibrahim’s enormous canvases,from the eye –popping abstract paintings to his grim collages if political turmoil and injustice .
