The artist uses heavily stylised visual devices, dividing the canvas into three – the open sky with barely any activity, the middle ground with Daesh weapons, international bombardment during liberation, and widescale destruction raining down upon the third section filled with the mask-like faces of anguished and terrified Maslawi citizens. The painting is almost tribal in character, using geometric patterns and forms to create drama and also simplify the language of the painting down to the bare destruction and pain that projects in its raw form from the canvas.
