Artwork by Nour Al Safadi
During the COVID-19 lockdown, Nour Al-Safadi was in contact with some of his friends. He asked them about their opinions and feelings during the lockdown. Few of the answers were the same: A difficult time, blurry future, and fears. Nour Al-Safadi started his artwork inspired by the conversations and points of view of his friends, creating a poster that brings his friends together, not physically but in a creative reality.
The print is a part of the Through Solidarity, We Survive initiative by CoCulture, Berlin, and is produced a limited edition of ten prints for Oslo World Festival. The art work is presented in Fotogalleriet's webshop as a part of the institution's collaboration with Oslo World Festival.
