About the event

Afghanistan's first female graffiti artist Shamsia Hassani paints crumbling and pock-marked walls in the streets of Kabul, replacing the constant reminders of war with her iconic and colourful images of a woman faced with the many challenges of life in Afghanistan.

Creating work through several mediums including murals, graffiti, digital illustrations, and traditional canvas painting, Hassani's art has been exhibited everywhere from galleries to walls around the world, receiving global acclaim. Examining the effects of war, economic and social instability, and an extremist regime on how Afghan women live their lives, Hassani’s work is ultimately filled with strength, possibility, and hope.

With an original work created specifically for OzAsia Festival, Art, Not War provides a rare chance to see the work of one of Afghanistan's most internationally celebrated artists up close.
