Inspired by the narrative paintings of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration series from 1940-1941, Zughaib’s “Syrian Migration Series” begins with the initial uprisings of the “Arab Spring” and its aftermath, the Syrian civil war and subsequent displacement of millions of people and a following refugee crisis that continues to affect the Arab world, Europe and the United States.
