Syrian Artist Paints World Leaders As Refugees
Trump, Obama, Merkel and more are depicted as displaced people.
Syrian artist Abdalla Al Omari is painting world leaders in an unexpected light: as refugees.
In “The Vulnerability Series,” Omari depicts President Donald Trump as an exhausted refugee, with a sleeping pad on his back and a child in his arms. The rest of the paintings, currently on exhibit at a Dubai gallery, show former President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and several other world leaders as “disenfranchised or displaced civilians,” per the gallery’s release.
