Showcased at the Ayyam Gallery in Dubai, Freedom Graffiti by Tammam Azzam makes a bold statement that raises awareness on the horrors taking place in Syria.

Azzam’s most bold piece takes ‘The Kiss’ by Gustav Klimt and places it over and image of the war-torn country. Though this juxtaposition is agressive, it generates necessary dialogue regarding the plague of war. With each piece, the artist uses an element of shock and unexpected associations to emote.

The intent behind this art is to create hope for action as a response to the adverse situation in Syria. The Freedom Graffiti by Tammam Azzam exhibit showcases more examples of the artist’s ability to evoke authentic awareness. Azzamm, like Picasso before him with Guernica, expresses adversity in the hopes of inspiring resilience.
