~the Creative Memory of the Syrian Revolution (drawings)

Drawing is the production of a two-dimensional image based on a subject of reality or fantasy. A drawing could be projected from a surface, imprinted on it, or carved in it; each of these methods has its own specific tools like knives, pencils, or pieces of charcoal. Colors are used, but shades of gray and black are the most common.

Drawing was never an art that garnered as much interest in Syria as photography did, despite the existence of some artists known worldwide. Particularly well-known were Syrian carving specialists.

In parallel to the innovations of those renowned artists that support the revolution and produce significant works, the revolution has also motivated young, amateur artists. This new generation handles various drawing tools, and creates on all available surfaces, including roofs on the receiving end of bombings.

Many informative programs have made this art approachable by supplying the necessary tools, providing opportunities to work on drawings available on the internet, and by highlighting works of high artistic value. Drawings of children in the revolution remain the most substantial kind of drawings as they bear honest, untainted testimonies of Syrians’ despair and sorrow; they convey the dreams destroyed by violence.

  1. Dear Tom,Next Filmfest Mfcnchen is coming soon, and by nointcig it I remember your retrospective last year. It was fantastic and I only wished, there would be such a retrospective again, or much better, a new film by Tom DiCillo.Did you see the little film we made about you for the University of Film and Television in Munich? Thanks again for your time, patience and your generous way.It would be great to have you some day here again, maybe for a Master Class?Best regards from Germany,Nuria
