Afghanistan graffiti

15 May

Ommolbanin Shamsia Hassani,
Inside the blackened ruin of Kabul’s cultural centre, a spray-painting of a woman in a burqa sits at the foot of a staircase to nowhere, beside a line of poetry mourning everything that has been lost to Afghanistan in three decades of violence.

The painting is the work of Shamsia Hassani, 24, probably her country’s first serious graffiti artist.

When she started contemporary arts, she didn’t have a specific style, but she has now found a way of expressing her art, and mostly use fishes to communicate individual and social situations through her paintings. Fishes and their words have become a part of the concept in her paintings, always feeling her presence among them.
