Scene: From Syria

A new series of artworks where I capture brief moments from the past from different Arab countries. This scene takes place in the old days of Syria where a sewing machine is a common household item.⠀

Here we see a Syrian grandmother, using the sewing machine with a smile on her face. The sounds of the fan, birds, etc add to the atmosphere. There a lot of of little things relevant to that time period that I am fascinated by leading me to create this series that aim to appreciate those little things.

This was an interesting challenge for me with a new style, angles, colors, animation and sounds.⠀
