Two Female Graffiti Artists in Afghanistan 1 Favorite 


Apr 3 2013


Kabul, Afghanistan

Meet Shamsia Hassani. At age 24, she is one of Afghanistan's first female graffiti artists.

An associate professor of sculpture at Kabul University, she was first introduced to graffiti in 2010 by British artist, Chu, during a week-long course in street art.

Meet also Malina Suliman, 23, who has been receiving threats from extremists due to her work in graffiti.

Both women use imagery of blue burqas to comment on the daily violence and oppression that Afghan women face.
