The Beauties of Life
Acrylic on canvas, 30x40cm
“Life is beautiful with all its problems. Just look at nature for a scent of heaven.”
“Hello! My name is Shahnaz. I am from Afghanistan. I’m 28 years old. I came to Greece in the fall of 2018. I first arrived to Greece on the island of Lesbos. Currently, I’m living in Athens. I’m with my son and husband but, because we don’t have a home, we are not living together. I don’t have any relatives in Europe so I asked for asylum papers in Greece. I’m patient and I try to be strong in front of problems even though I’m an emotional person.
I didn’t paint in my home country. I went to a class in Lesvos and they helped me to learn. When I’m painting, it helps me feel calm.
I went to school in Afghanistan until fifth grade. My dream is to continue my studies and to have a successful family.”
