Source – BBC News - From Syria torture to UK art success
An exhibition to mark the 6 year anniversary of Hasan Abdalla's arrival in the UK.
Unable to return to his Syrian homeland, yet fortunate to have been able to leave, this solo show is full of both celebration and sadness, music and mayhem.
As friends and landscapes become memories, painting has remained Hasan’s solitary companion.
His work has become seeped with meaning and history, a way to remember and to forget. Hasan Abdalla's primal drive to create, to silently express and search for truth and beauty, has been one of the few constants in this incredible artist’s life.
