The creatures found in self-taught Syrian painter Sabhan Adam's work could only be found in nightmares. The variety of dark and gruesome creatures all have a face that is similar to his own. "The figures I paint have so many things in common with me--they look like me, they have the same head and the same asian eyes as me. I draw myself with everything that exists inside--the sadness, the misery, the shocking things I have faced, the isolation, and the feeling of not belonging to this world."
