Nouri has been living in harsh conditions in a camp in Belgrade in the past eight months with his parents and two brothers. For him, the only way to release from his suffering in refugees camp is drawing as when he draws he thinks of nothing.
Consequently, he is used to drawing people inspiring him including Novak Djokovic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Angela Merkel, Salvador Dali and his hero Pablo Picasso along with scenes from Belgrad.
"His talent is truly exceptional," said Ivan Miskovic, from the Serbian government's refugee agency as reported by the Chicago Tribune.
“We quickly realized how talented he was and sent him to a painting school as well as a three-month photography workshop, so this is a retrospective of what he learnt there,” explained Edin Sinanovic from the 'Refugees Foundation, a local NGO, according to the South China Morning post.
He used the art show to make a difference to the life of a seven-year-old Serbian boy, whose family are fundraising to help pay for lifesaving treatment at a specialist clinic in Paris.
The talented boy sold his photographs with some money and he put a box for collecting donation for the Serbian boy. By helping him, he'ssendt a message to people on the importance of kind acts.
