Olivier Kugler's original drawings documenting the lives of refugees from his book 'Escaping War and Waves.'


Olivier Kugler s series of brilliant drawings of refugees from Syria will be
exhibited at the Print House Gallery from 18 June 15 July. Collected in
his book ESCAPING WAR AND WAVES for the first time, the drawings document
the lives of individuals and families he met in Iraq Kurdistan, the tourist
island of Kos, and the jungle camp at Calais, mostly on commission for Médecins Sans Frontières.

As well as his work with Médecins Sans Frontières, Kugler recorded the experiences of refugees in London,Birmingham and Simmozheim, the small village in Germany where he grew up. The stories he tells are often tragic but also uplifting, testimony to both human senselessness and resilience. Based on many interviews, thousands of reference photos, and an acute observation of the objects, locations and
conversations making up our daily lives, the effects of what he records will
be felt for decades to come. On display will be original sketches (A4),
pencil drawings (A2) and prints in various sizes from the ESCAPING WARS AND
WAVES project.
