This study has four chapters on me, the first of which is the general framework of the research, while the second chapter in the current study included the theoretical framework that contained two axes of knowledge, the first of which was: expression in contemporary Iraqi art, while the second axis included coding in contemporary Iraqi art.At the end of the third chapter, the researcher mentioned the indicators that emerged from this chapter.As for the research procedures, in which the researcher specified his research community with (20) works from which the researcher intentionally chose his research samples that were determined as (2) work. Artist Adel Kamel's memory is rich in historical, mythological, political and social issues of multiple origins from ancient Iraqi, Arab and Islamic, and popular myths, from which he draws expressive images and symbols that he employs in intellectual and artistic formulations that express the problems of contemporary man. The artist formulates his ideas within plastic structures with an apparent expressive dimension, after another implicit symbolic dimension, and the first dimension is related to the nature of the shapes and the methods of their formulation, while the symbolic dimension arises through the addition of the elements of space, time, the surrounding atmosphere and the relationships between the shapes. Moreover, the researcher reached a set of conclusions, the most important of which is the expression representing the artist's mirror that reflects his observations and direct life experiences, while coding represents the summary of his deep reflections and inner thoughts about what he sees and lives in life. Artist Adel Kamel works in light of specific ideas that lead him to choose the appropriate techniques and materials to show and embody them in a work loaded with special intellectual and aesthetic values. The artist's artistic skills serve his aesthetic orientations with an encyclopedic horizon open to the various philosophical and aesthetic propositions that he places in their appropriate apparent contexts.
