We would mark the collaboration of our artist Luciano Romano in the new project of Shirin Neshat, in London.
Luciano Romano is part of the project shooting for Shirin Neshat’s last work. A simple and emotional portrait that captures the inner light of a young extraordinary woman. The National Portrait Gallery in London has unveiled a newly commissioned portrait of Malala Yousafzai. The portrait is the first in a series of two commissions given to Iranian-born artist and filmmaker, Shirin Neshat, who is renowned for her work exploring gender relation in Islamic culture. In October 2012, Malala was shot in the head in an attack by a Taliban gunman on her school bus. The attack was in retaliation to her writing about life during the Taliban occupation of Swat Valley, and the ban on girls’ education. In 2014, Malala became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
We thank, support and share the great and hide-spirited work of Shirin Neshat and Malala, brave women, in the defense of women rights.
