Acrylic on wooden panels

New York

In these series of paintings I depict the image of a muslim woman wearing a hijab and paint it in the style of famous 60s modern artists. I used their styles and techniques and appropriate it in order to paint a figure of a muslim woman. It plays of the idea that now this muslim woman is painted in the style of modern art is she show considered modern? It's a satire on the stereotypical idea of muslim women can't be modern as they are seen as traditional and set back in time.
