Portraits Abstracted
Syrian artist Omran Younis enjoyed listening to classical music in the background while painting beautiful abstract paintings, but In 2011, as the sounds he began listening to the background became bombs and rockets, he struggled with how to use the medium of art to convey to the world the widespread suffering of the war.
