Seen Beyond

Graphic Pain


Since the conflict in Syria began to grow more and more painful, we have seen many artistic comments from creative Syrians. Sulafa Hijazi is one such example – with simple graphical sketches, she powerfully visualises what is going on in her country.

Sulafa is a writer and director of children’s animations, who has been working with illustrations, documentaries, live drama and puppet shows since 1997. She was part of founding Spacetoon, the first free Arabic satellite channel for children, and she recently established the digital art production house blue.dar. The illustrations published below all deal with the current situation in Syria.
