"My Grandmother"

Mohammed Al-Amari fled Syria's Civil War and is now painting his pain. Each person that he paints is waiting. "They're waiting," he explains. "When I see it, when I paint it, they're waiting for a moment when they can return to the life as it was, when it used to be beautiful. We hope that the future will be more beautiful. But at the same time I feel the abyss. The path could also go for the worse. "
