Syrian war-inspired art on display

Intriguing and often satirical work inspired by the country's years-long crisis is now on display in London.

    Tammam Azzam's digital pictures caused a bit of an Internet sensation a few months ago, seeing as they are heavily influenced by, and reference, the Syrian civil war.

    Now, Azzam is getting a chance to display his work to an international audience, with an exhibition in the UK capital.
