    Art Description:

    This piece, Bad Harvest, is about overburden and intolerance. This piece was inspired by the outcome of the long lasting Syrian civil war. Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been killed and some twelve million people have been displaced. It is made of acrylic on canvas of size 48x48 inches. Created in May 2019. The painting is signed on the front by me. The stretched canvas is staple free sides, wired on the back and with no need for framing. It's ready to hang.

    Medium Used: Acrylic on Canvas

    For me, creativity is a derivative of mode and ambience of painting sessions. I believe that, the character of a painting reflects the mode of the artist through brush strokes, texture and colour. I believe a painting has a life of its own that evolves during painting session. For me, a painting starts to take direction after I cover the canvas with paint. Then I start to solve many problems the painting has, until I end up with a painting that tells a story or delivers a statement. I consider the art of painting as the fastest way to record any artistic idea or to document a situation experienced by the artist as result of being in a given community. I am a believer in the famous saying - if you want to know how great a society is, look at its art.
