Artists Banksy & Ai Wei Wei use their Art to Raise Awareness

Banksy.on.the.thekla.arp.jpgLast week we shared some truly unique creations by an artist very close to the Syrian refugee crisis.

In a similar spirit of artistic expression,  our focus this week is on two Artists; Ali Weiwei and Banksy, who have also used their artistic talents as powerful tools in expressing their heartbreak over the ongoing Syrian Refugee crisis.

Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist and political activist of unverified identity. Recently, the mysterious artist, who is most well known for his unique graffiti and outdoor art with deep social undertones, has used his latest art to speak out against the treatment of Syrian refugees.

Banksy’s art depicts the young girl from Les Miserables in a cloud of tear gas, her eyes swollen and tears running down here face. The image was strategically painted on a wall across the street and directly facing the French Embassy in London. The artist also painted a scannable QR code on the left bottom corner of the artwork. Including a QR codes in his graffiti art is said to be a first for Banksy. Upon scanning the code, it directs viewers to a  video on youtube that captures a  police raid in the Calias “Jungle” earlier this year.   To view more art by Banksy, visit the Artist’s website here.

Ai Wei Wei is an artist and Chinese activist who’s art has drawn the attention of people all around the world. Recently, Ai Wei Wei recreated a horrific scene of a Syrian toddler who died on the beach during the ongoing Syrian Refugee crisis. Ai Wei Wei recreated the scene “to keep the attention on the continued plight of refugees entering Europe”(Think Progress).

Ai Wei Wei has a history of using his artistic expressions in art to raise awareness for important issues.

Art by Syrian Artist evokes emotion

About Nizar Ali Badr

Nizar Ali Badr is an established Syrian sculptor from Latakia, Syria, whose simple stone sculptures tell complex stories. Words are not his thing, but stones.

Nizar Ali tells the story of Syrian families using stones to depict human emotions, and the suffering and hardship of war. He tells the story of migration using stones to depict the gravity of the crisis and the refugee crisis, and his portrayal is painfully accurate.

The scenes are minimalist and intimate, yet are also sharp and distressing narratives. People, family, love, children, joy… Sadness, sorrow, misfortune, war, death, migration, exile…

Melted in the midst of an unimaginable collection of stone compositions and sculptures arranged by the artist’s hands, one can feel wisdom, simplicity, a great love for humanity, and hope.

Nizar Ali’s stone sculptures are also a witness of solidarity among all the people of the planet whose lives are destroyed by war.
