Made For Middle East

Women are the major issue of the figurative history. Generally, the radical feminists stand in front of endless ranges of beautiful images of women, from the Venus of Willendorf to Louis Vuitton advertisement, but I’m illustrating you a different situation of her, showing ones hair is considered a deadly sin, because it is against religious dogmas. These women aren’t imaginary; you can find them in London’s Harrods, Casablanca’s alleys, Tehran’s parties or in Indonesian clubs…
Nevertheless, the obsession with covering one’s body is not the main issue I want to address; I wanted to show women’s portrait as they really are and the fact that it was fortuitous that they were born in a geographical islamic region. This work is just a little part of the figurative history of Women.
