My focus is discrimination through ignorance and misunderstanding. My painting is in the form of a diptych, exploring two aspects of the Muslim culture. On the left shown is the true beauty of Islam, portrayed through architecture, designs and calligraphy. On the right, there is a woman in a hijab, but a closer view reveals a bullet in her mouth and a handcuff around her wrist. This represents the view that the western society has upon how Muslim girls are treated and oppressed. By exploring two sides to the culture and religion, i attempted to bring out what people normally do not see at first sight, and that what they hear from the media and from others around them isn't always truthful.
