Yellow truck, 1994, 2006, today and tomorrow
Childhood memories of deportation from the south. Something that is constantly happening to the Lebanese people, and we are always in the danger of it happening again. This paintings shows my memory, of when we where heading to the Capital Beirut, running away from the explosives back south, where the traffic was horrible, and as my head was out of the car window, trying to breath, I glimpsed a yellow truck filled with children. Children that looked like scared hiding kittens.

Destruction and Reconstruction
Beirut the city of culture is being demolished down to build new towers.
