Art Represent presents the first UK solo exhibition of Afghani artist Malina Suliman
BEYOND THE VEIL – A DECONTEXTUALISATION
Born in 1990 in Kandahar, Malina Suliman is one of a small number of female artists who have emerged from war-ravaged Afghanistan. After studying Fine Art in Pakistan, Suliman was inspired by the potential of street art. When she began working as a street artist in Kandahar, her work garnered global attention. One of her most iconic motifs was the skeletal form dressed in a blue burqa which highlighted the issues of identity, inequality, and oppression in Afghanistan.
Malina now resides in the Netherlands where she is completing her MA at the Dutch Art Institute.
Malina is also a founder of the Kandahar Fine Arts Association (KFAA).
