She writes on the walls to heal herself, her community, her culture. Listen to her story… Witness her as she pushes the boundaries of her society as a female artist speaking her truth about women’s rights and the role of women in revolutionary movements.
“I was born and raised in Iran and in the last 3 years of school I wanted to chose art as my major subject but I was told that as an Afghan I wasn’t allowed. So I studied accounting which was okay but a million miles away from painting.
When my family came back to Afghanistan I tried again and passed into the Faculty of Fine Arts at Kabul University. Art is such a part of my life that I don’t know what would happen if was not able to continue. It would be like having a piece cut out of me.”
Peace, love and light!
