Paintings to voice the resistance of Afrin and celebrate Rojava diversity.

The 3rd Rojava Painting Exhibition was opened in Qamishlo. The exhibition is promoted by the Cultural and Art Council in the Cizire Canton. Artists were invited to present their works inspired by the slogan: “The art of the peoples is the voice of Afrin resistance”.

The exhibition is organised within the Day of Martyrs and opened on 18 May.  

Some 125 paintings by 47 painters coming from Cizire, Firat (Euphrates) and Manbij are exhibited.
