Los Desastres de la Guerra (After Francisco Goya) - by Tarek Chemaly

(based on Francisco Goya's "Los Desastres de la Guerra)

In 2017 I issued a full book after "Der Krieg" by Otto Dix, and this year on a total whim I did a new series based on "Los Desastres de la Guerra" after Francisco Goya. In both series, though in totally different styles, I tried to find overlap and cross-over with the Lebanese war, a war which seems to perpetuate itself and which keeps bursting periodically. Above are two samples of the series in question. Enjoy!
