DAMSCUS- The first glass engraving exhibition under the title "Glass Bleeding" by the Syrian Artist Talal Dayyoub opened on Tuesday at the Russian Cultural Center in Damascus.
Dayyoub depicted in 32 pictures documentary and symbolic scenes of the suffering of the Syrian citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan and the Palestinians under the Israeli occupation, in addition to a number of drawings taken from real shots of the Israeli massacres perpetrated in Palestine and south Lebanon.
Dayyoub said "the Israeli occupation is a bloody message revealing that these daily painful and brutal scenes will not be transient or familiar. Therefore, I want my pictures to document these scenes so that we see them always with the sadness and anger of seeing them for the first time".
He added that the occupation is an unfair brutality, not only against humanity but also against nature, beauty and values, since nothing escaped its aggression, even olive trees. So the Israeli allegations are false and the only truth is that Israel is a cancerous cell which wants to swallow every living thing.
On the large number of barbed wires and bars scenes in his paintings, Dayyoub said "the occupation is the opposite of freedom so it is also the opposite of humanity.
On choosing the glass as a raw material for his artistic scream, the artist said "glass is the material from which media and TV lens were made, and whenever I saw the scenes of death and disaster I imagine them engraving on the glass of the screen before they were carved on the pupil of my eye and became one of my view of the world".
Dayyoub was born in 1977 in Salamiya city, central Syria.
The 2-week exhibition coincides with the 2nd anniversary of the Israeli aggression on Gaza Strip.
