Syrian Graffiti

An artwork designed by Zaher Omareen and Ibrahim Fakhri was commissioned feature as part of the V&A exhibition Disobedient Objects. The two artists discuss the background and process of the artwork which documents some of the individuals lost in the Syrian revolution. The piece was created using stencils and spray painted directly onto the gallery wall. Similar stencils have been shared online to encourage people to repeat them on walls around the world as they have done and continue to in Syria. The text in the artwork reads ‘Freedom'
