Tragically not even a recent piece of art by Syrian artist Tammam Azzam, but this picture keeps touching me, every time it pops up somewhere and is unfortunately still topical:
With his own way of speaking out, Tammam has painted a superimposed version of ‘The Kiss’ (Gustav Klimt) onto a bombed Syrian building, to highlight the pain and suffering in his country, Syria.
I love how this painting offers us a way of looking for the love stories behind this wall before it was completely obliterated by war machinery. A powerful juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, symbol of faith, hope and love.
When the power of love is greater than the love of power, the world will know peace.
