THE ARAB SPRING THING. 20 x 20 cm. Mixed Media on Card. 2012.
Whatever Happened to the Arab Spring? We still have refugees fleeing Syria for camps with no proper sanitation, children who have seen their parents butchered before their eyes, rapes on top of busses in India, daily shootings of innocent people in Washington and London, immeasurable personal tragedies brought about by dictatorships, inhumane socially acceptable norms and a gun culture which is widespread and totally unacceptable in any civilised society. Can we let those who defied horrendous odds to gain freedom from oppression feel abandoned? Peace is hard-won and it seems it has always been so.
