Arty-Fact: "Following my Arab Spring and the Cradle of Civilization exhibition, I decided to create less politically charged paintings.
"Unfortunately, I realised my plan to do so had failed when I added an eye patch to the Egyptian citizen in this work. This painting was supposed to be non-political. Instead, it now pays homage to the men and women who were brave enough to keep protesting in Tahrir Square and, subsequently, would lose an eye to rubber bullets by snipers. Today, I am reminded that we can't escape our reality as the brave men and women in Sudan are targeted and oppressed in the same recent history that keeps repeating itself in the Middle East." ~ Rasha Eleyan
