Nizar Ali Badr pebble stories

Talented sculptor Nizar Ali Badr expresses his thoughts through the ordinary media which can be found just under feet – pebbles. It is naturally for the artist living in a port city of Syria – Latakia to work with rocks and stones. Taking into consideration the difficult situation that has developed in his country – war, refugee movements, loss of loved ones – all this could not but affect the work of the Syrian sculptor. He recreates the events taking place in the country through pebbles – here, in the ancient city of Latakia he transmits the pain of the people who have to die, to suffer, to leave the country, but also there is a hope for the revival of the country, the return of human values – love, home, family. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any biographical information about the artist.
