Syrian sculptor and painter Oroubah Dieb recounts the moving tale of her displacement from Syria and how she uses her work as a way of raising awareness for those less fortunate. “My art is incredibly personal in its topics. Before the uprising in Syria, I portrayed social subjects like maternity, love, and dancing. Nowadays, a lot of my art embodies the experience of living in exile that refugees are forced to face. My paintings depict the dramatic situations that are borne of population displacement and migration”.
