I am a young artist from Afghanistan. Two years ago, I wrote the statement below – it is my feeling of belonging to nature.
We need to stop war, and start laughing with life.
With my paintings I want to show positive nature – beautiful things about nature.
Don’t damage nature. Keep nature from damage by humans – all of us – all religions, all professions, rich or poor, all shapes, colours, sizes.
Positive nature is a multitude of different creatures, plants and habitats. Wild animals need places where it is quiet and protected, without buildings. There is a law of nature for the animals – a spider needs to hunt animals for meat. If humans eat enough it is okay.
I am a very serious artist and I want to do this professionally. I want to look after nature with my paint brush, not with guns. I believe that art has the power to change minds by showing people what is beautiful.
