Syrian born artists Tammam Azzam has found a way to protest against his country's current government and their failure to intervene with the constant strife. His work ranges from digital renditions to 3 story murals of famous paintings. The pieces are being shown in galleries all over the world, including Art Basel Miami and the Ayyam Gallery in Damascus. Each piece has it's own symbolic meaning. The artist uses the crumbling wall of a bullet pierced building as a canvas for Gustav Klimt's romantic piece, "The Kiss".
