Art Supporting Peace in Syria

An open-air art exhibition held in a Qamishli park aims to promote the culture of peace. Dozens of paintings distributed throughout the park deal with topics such as displacement, homelessness, migration, the victims of bombing and human rights.

The paintings vary in concept and material. One artist, Lokman Hussein, use many different tools to convey his ideas, including materials damaged by bombings in Qamishli, such as dolls, textbooks and pieces of furniture.

Slogans were also included as part of the exhibition, alongside olive branches as a symbol of peace.
