With the title "Halloween", the Palestinian artist drew an Israeli soldier with his head replaced by a pumpkin and on the right side Spateen painted a school bag floting in the air with an angel sign above it.
According to the artist, Taqi explained that he wanted to deliver a message to the world through his latest artwork that while the world is joyfully celebrating Halloween, people in Palestine are living in horror every day under the occupation.
The Palestinian artist Taqi Spateen posted the photo of his artwork on his official Instagram account, where he has over 9K followers, and wrote: "You celebrate the horror & we live in it. Oh world ! If you are looking for a scary costume, we have a kid whose heart stopped and he died just seeing this costume (IOF)."
