I want to tell you about the current situation in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, as it is nothing but terrible. In 2001, Atul Dodiya made a painting entitled “woman from Kabul” which is a reflection of the current situation in Kabul.

Atul Dodiya`s work is a potent reminder of the plight of the refugee. Woman from Kabul is a work about living in Afghanistan during the new millennium. Throughout his work, the artist recalls the collapse of a nation rich in history and resources. Against a very decorative backdrop of wallpaper, an elderly woman squats while bared of most of her black burka. Skin and bones, both of which are representative of the oppression and squalor in the city, form her body. 

Atul Dodiya himself is an art, just want to say Atul Dodiya Ek art hai art!!
