Syrian Museum

Syrian artist Tammam Azzam left his home in Damascus at the start of the Syrian civil war. Losing his studio, he turned to digital art to call attention to the horrors unfolding in his homeland. Early last year, his piece called Freedom Graffiti went viral (see above). The work showed Gustav Klimt’s painting The Kiss photoshopped across a war-ravaged building in Damascus. That piece led to a moving series called Syrian Museum that combines photographs of Syrian devastation with famous paintings.
