A Syrian artist named Abdalla has created a series of paintings that reimagine world leaders as refugees. Included in his project are Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Kim Jong-un and Kim Jong-un. He also created paintings of less well-known leaders including Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
For the individuals on this list that you may not recognize, it would be the perfect time to do some research. You can make this the ultimate history project. Overall, Abdalla has named the entire project ‘The Vulnerability Series’.
“Intimate hours I spent with them have thought me more than I could imagine,” wrote Abdalla on his website (abdallaomari.com). “Just as easily as everything worth defending can become defenseless, moments of absolute powerlessness can give you superpowers. In this universe without gravity, all we can hold on to is our vulnerability. I have convinced myself it is the strongest weapon humankind possesses, way more powerful than the trail of power games, bomb craters and bullet holes in our collective memories. Vulnerability is a gift we should all celebrate.”
