Exploring The Earth Together, acrylic on canvas, 100 x 80 cm, 2021
Fariba Nawa, an award-winning Afghan-American journalist, covers a range of issues and specializes in women’s rights and conflict zones. She lived and reported from Afghanistan from 2002 to 2007, and witnessed the U.S.-led war against the Taliban and al Qaeda. She has also reported from Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, and Germany.
In this painting, I tried to convey Fariba Nawa’s relationship with her children and her story as an immigrant mother from past to present.
