Day 34

Today I thought I’d share some art by Zuhair Hassib, a Kurdish-Syrian artist who was born in 1960. 

His art is multifaceted. Hassib explores human closeness, femininity and colour on the one hand and war, destruction and sadness on the other. I suppose you could call this a metaphor for the situation in Syria as a whole; in just the past few weeks the news has focussed on the siege in East Aleppo as well as the romantic, poetic graffiti it provoked.

Without analysing Syrian current affairs further, I hope you enjoy this small collection of paintings:
