There was a place,
Where I was born
Raised, walked, played, studied, got into a fight or two, fell in love & more, had coffee with friends, gossiped, argued, laughed, danced, painted, cried…
At the end of the day I smiled because I was surrounded with loved ones,
and I know there’s no place like home!
What if your home was suddenly taken away from you by force?! You have to leave it all behind & start a new… Everything!
Even if you stayed, you can’t gaurantee your life or your loved ones! You know nothing will ever be the same!
That’s war… It rapes a “home” but can never steal your memories away…
Please cease fire for real! Haven’t you done enough damage?
Tammam Azzam is a Syrian young artist who has the ability to freeze a deeply painful, bloody moment & scream it out with art. Tammam is bravely pointing out the ugly truth in Syria since March 2011. ‘Cease Fire’ (2012, Medium: Digital Art) is his latest work of courage -art- part of a collection and he generously gave Al Maha approval to post it. I will write about the entire collection once it is completed.
Thank you Tammam for being brave in a creative, sincere way!
