Spring In Syria, 2011 revolves around the destructive cruelty and machismo persecution that exist in our domestic life in Syria. I chose this title because I was living in Homs in spring 2011 and was always thinking about how people outside of that land of war were experiencing that same spring. In this painting, I have focused on the country, the ground, the construction, the debris and the slogans of demonstrations in Syria in the light of this war.

I am no longer surprised when I hear that a certain street I had passed through in Syria has collapsed; indeed, my experience of the war has convinced me that nothing can last. This explains why I mix images of cities affected and unaffected by the war to make a single destructive unity through my painting.
