This Artist Creates Thought-Provoking Illustrations About Modern Day Issues

FadiToOn (Fadi Abou Hassan) is a widely published and award-winning freelance cartoonist. He lived as a refugee in Syria until the uprising in 2011, and is known for his many cartoons commenting on the everyday life and political events in Syria and the Middle East in general. His cartoons focus on human rights, women’s rights, and political violence taking place in the country. He is very critical of the political elite in Syria.

“I am a widely published and award-winning cartoonist/illustrator currently based in the UK.

I work as the organizer of “Children in war,” an international cartoon exhibition focused on the suffering of children in war and conflict areas. The exhibition is produced in cooperation with the Norwegian cartoonists’ Gallery, Norway 2015.

My cartoons have been published in various print and online outlets, including Al-Quds (Jerusalem), Al-Arabi (London), The New Arab (London), Alroya (Muscat, Oman), Al-Seyassah (Kuwait), Amta (Norway), Samora (Norway), Numer (Norway), Samtiden (Norway), Courrier International (Paris), Le Monde (Paris), New Internationalist (Amsterdam), (Qatar), Amnesty International’s website (Denmark), and Toon pool (Germany). I also published my cartoons online on the Dutch website Cartoon Movement and on the French website Cartooning for Peace. I’m also editor-in-chief of Cartoon Home Network International.

My cartoons have been exhibited in different cities, like Drobak, Oslo, Amsterdam, The Hague, Paris, Trento, Ramallah, Lisbon, Madrid, Meknes, Damascus, Tokyo, Rome, Doha, etc. In June 2018 I won the third prize of the World Press Cartoon, (One of the most important international cartoon festivals in the world), in Portugal.
