Narrative lines

by: Sahar Abdallah

“Narrative lines” is a series of illustrations that draw on poems written by Palestinian poet, Mahmoud Darwish. Sahar uses her artwork to bring Darwish’s words to life. Narrative Lines aims to draw parallels between illustration and poetry while sharing and celebrating a part of Palestinian culture with the public, especially children.
