UNITED KINGDOM---Imranovi (not his real name) is a Syrian artist in exile, now living in Dubai. His first UK solo exhibition, "Modern Face of Syria," is hosted by Art Represent - an organisation that offers a platform and support for artists affected or displaced by conflict and social upheaval. In his work, Imranovi, a graphic artist, uses his first-hand experience of the ongoing civil war in Syria as inspiration and reflects on the continuing refugee crisis in Europe. While the western world debates what to do about Assad and Islamic State, Imranovi wants us to remember that the bloody civil war rages on. [link]
