Citizenne Zero

Houmam Al Sayed

The artist’s signature portraiture depicts dense, crushed figures that represent the loss of hope. Nevertheless, the faces of the figures are incessantly looking upwards, symbolizing new beginnings. The few themes that reoccur in the artist’s work are namely families fleeing and men huddled in streets, representing the Syrian revolt.
