19th of July
Border Industrial Complex - 01


Acrylic on Canvas

16 x 20 inches

I painted 19th July to tell my own story about trying to seek asylum in Australia. Instead of finding safety, I was faced with the July 19th 2013 policy of no hope in limbo and told "You will never make Australia home".


In this painting the only thing which is realistic is the ocean. Because everything that I experienced during my journey was based on lies, but the ocean was real and true.
