The three paintings with titles; “Mediterranean Sea View 2017”, ‘Visual amendments, evokes mass death at sea” and “Natural Sublime” has made an impact on the buyers as they got auctioned and were able to raise $2.9 million for Palestinian hospitals. 2010 resulted in a refugee crisis across the Mediterranean Sea that brought social chaos and unrest amongst the whole community since thousands of people lost their lives in makeshift rafts and boats.
An England based artist opened a painting gallery in Bethlehem in 2017 for the purpose of charity and helping the ones in destitute and trouble. His sole purpose was to cause awareness and a call to action with respect to the refugee crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with his paintings. It provides surgical instruments, medical equipment, and rehabilitation services to help with money raised.
He has also issued a very powerful statement that “We’re often led to believe migration is a drain on the country’s resources but Steve Jobs was the son of a Syrian migrant. Apple is the world’s most profitable company, it pays over $7bn (£4.6bn) a year in taxes — and it only exists because they allowed in a young man from Homs.’’
