Graffiti Artists of Kabul | Shamsia Hassani

A huge mural showing a group of women wearing blue burkas emerging from water by Shamsia Hassani.

“You can see the water and woman coming from the water,” she says. “Blue is a freedom color is a clean color and I shows that all Afghan women are like water clean and blue.”

Laura Lynch is reporting from Kabul for PRI. She has provided a evocative slideshow of public art seen on the walls of Kabul.
