Afghan, Pakistani Artists Paint Peace And The Environment
Artists are often inspired by their environment. In Afghanistan and Pakistan, two painters are using their art to raise awareness about some of the most pressing issues in their country.
Hamdullah Arbab’s life has been defined by four decades of war. He is utilizing his skills to advocate peace and highlight the horrors of war in his country. Ali Sajid, a painter based in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar, has used his mastery to highlight the environmental challenges in northern Pakistan. The region is home to some of the most majestic mountains in the world but faces grave environmental problems.
