This selling exhibition, organised by VC ART, shows the work of Syrian artists and part of the proceeds achieved will go towards the work Oxfam is doing for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, especially the Informal Tented Settlements programme. Over two million refugees have left Syria during the civil war.

The exhibition shows how in times of civil unrest and humanitarian crisis art can help. The five artists, aged between 21 and 42, are Fadi Al Hamwi, Tarek Butayhi, Mohamad Khayata, Thaer Maarouf and Ashraf Raheb and this pop-up exhibition gives them an opportunity to show their work to a new audience and London a chance to help them. Some sixty works will be shown, with prices ranging between £300 and £5,000 so dig deep in your pockets for this very worthwhile cause.
