Artist Paints Trump, Putin, Obama And Other World Leaders As Refugees

Our generation is facing a large-scale refugees crisis. Around 65.3 million people around the world have been forced from home. Out of them, 21.3 million people are refugees. Every day, as a result of conflict or persecution, 34,000 people are forcibly displaced. Anyway, a Syrian artist, Abdalla Al-Omari has painted world leaders as refugees and the series is currently on display in Dubai.

Omari himself has refugee status in Belgium, and it took him 19 months to create this art exhibition, titled “The Vulnerability Series”.

Al-Omari told CNN, “Being a refugee is like having a new lump in your body that you had nothing to do with, and it will stay until the last day, so you better deal with it.”

“People are sometimes too fond of their politicians. They cannot see them fall off their thrones. They cannot see them weak.”

He further added: “Somehow my aim shifted from an expression of anger that I had…to a more vivid desire to disarm my figures, to picture them outside their positions of power.”

Omari wanted to imagine how these leaders would look like if they were in the refugee state.
