IOTD …. “🇦🇫 ‘Images of the Day, Sad, Silent Edition – Kabul Regressing’ 🇦🇫 …. “!!

~~September 16, 2021~~


I first learned about this amazing street artist as the withdrawal by American forces began in Kabul, Afghanistan. Shamsia, it seems to me, became a local icon, I guess. Her art seems to have graced many of the streets where she lives.

Yesterday, she posted the picture included above and this message in ther Twitter account.


Since the news about the withdrawal, I’ve been aware of some of the things the Taliban does … among these, they destroyed all the musical instruments in a local school. Musicians and artists are worried about what will happen to them.

I’m concerned about Shamsia, now more than ever, as her ‘murals’ seem to be erased. I’m saving the paintings she’s posted on Facebook as a humble way to safeguard them.

Hassani was born in 1988 and spent her childhood in Iran; her parents had temporarily immigrated there, from Kandahar, Afghanistan during the war.

#Silence … #Sadness … #Regression … in Kabul!!



Shamsia Hassani – (Real Name: Ommolbanin Hassani) (born 1988) is an Afghan graffiti artist, a fine arts lecturer, and the associate professor of Drawing and Anatomy Drawing at the Kabul University.

She has popularized “street art” in the streets of Kabul and has exhibited her art in several countries including India, Iran, Germany, United States of America, Switzerland, Vietnam, Norway, Denmark, Turkey, Italy, Canada, and in diplomatic missions in Kabul.

Hassani paints graffiti in Kabul to bring awareness to the war years. In 2014, Hassani was named one of FP’s top 100 global thinkers.
