Whirling Dervish, Oil on Canvas, 33 x 25 cm, 2020 by Milad Yousufi

About the work:

Whirling Dervish is inspired by my own life and thoughts. The abstract whirling dervish expresses the inner state of a refugee, whirling through the world, unmoored, away from family, home and country and wandering to an unknown destination, while the abstract calligraphy refers to the refugee’s hopes of peace, love and generosity carried on the journey.
