A series of mash-ups by Basel Elmaqosui, pairing classic works by the masters with scenes from the street.

Mr. Elmaqosui inserted “The Card Players” by Cézanne into a photograph of men playing cards on a blanket in one of the United Nations schools that have sheltered thousands of displaced residents for weeks. He put Picasso’s “Child With a Dove” next to an actual dove — or perhaps a white pigeon — perched on one of the only walls that remain standing in the destroyed village of Khuza’a, in front of a Palestinian flag. Beside a Beit Hanoun neighborhood reduced to rubble, the figure in Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” howls. 

“Many of these drawings are related to our reality. They happened before in the world. It’s like they are happening again now.” He said.

See the article “ Artists’ Work Rises From the Destruction of the Israel-Gaza Conflict ” about his work in the New York times .

Distancing yourself from others is the easiest way to minimize pain. Always mind the gap. Ensure that the gap is significant and don’t let temporary warmth fill it.

Stay with me - Sam Smith ft. Mary J Blige

One of the songs i should sing to people in my life because they always tend to leave and forget. Or maybe I should just work on being a better companion. But regardless, this song is so fucking beautiful.
