The German-Syrian painter Tarek Marestani is out to capture the integration struggles of young immigrants on canvas. A travelling exhibition is already being planned for his work.
Painter Tarek Marestani had the idea to do a series portraits on young people in Germany with migrant backgrounds, but he began to realize the project a year ago after moving to Berlin.
He began by establishing contacts in districts of Berlin that are popular destinations for immigrants and asking them if they would be interested in letting their children sit for his project as models. Many agreed.
