This art is about the refugees who fleed from their country because of war and hunger. The refugees were like burgers looking for jobs ,food and clothes. Unfortunately some of the peoples were using the refugees like donkeys , slaves and house maids ,they gave them work which is very tough to complete taking the advantage of their desperate .some of them were taken as house maids,some were taken as second wife in one family of one man and third wife in one family of one man. The way how they were taken was very bad,working like donkeys ,slaves and house maids without paid salary caused me to create this art . As I saw the way how they were handled ,I was captured in my heat and I felt pain like it were done for me, because humans are not like animals . we belongs to the creater of the world who is full of love. With love we are one family.
Drawing human portraits, environment and landscapes, inspires me as an artist. I realised that this is really the talent that God gives me. My art is formed with different colours, where by each colour has its own meaning. I use acrylic paint, water colours, oil paint on canvas and on boards. The nature influences me and as a talent and self-taught. I grew up to the level where I am.
