Tense images of famous art superimposed over photos of war

Syrian artist Tammam Azzam has overlaid iconic art works onto photos of his war-torn homeland. Azzam calls these new works of art “Freedom Graffiti.” He’s used some of western civilizations most famous paintings. In one, he superimposed Edward Munch’s “The Scream” over the remains of a building’s interior. In another, he puts a series of Andy Warhol’s portraits of Elvis Presley with a pistol drawn and standing in the rubble of a street.

The symbolism is obvious and helps illustrate our species’ ability to both create and then destroy what it has created.1 Share 2 Share 3 Share 4 Share 5 Share 6 Share 7 Share 8 Share 9 Share
