Baby by RFUG, 36 x 24 Acrylic on Canvas

Maison Depoivre Gallery is proud to present unique and powerful works by RFUG. As a refugee artist Bashar Shammas, a.k.a RFUG, was forced to leave his Syrian home when he was 16, a place that no longer exists. The show includes paintings on book covers that Bashar painted in Syria during the war. Join him for the opening reception on August 3 4-7PM.

His painting titled Baby is an homage to the Syrian babies who fled with their parents in extremely perilous conditions aboard makeshift boats.

His work will be on display at Maison Depoivre until August 26 at 343 County Rd 22, Picton.
