Arab News. Can you believe it? The article covered the artwork by Saudi artist Qaswra Hafez. I actually have it ripped out and taped to my bedroom wall. It depicts a person wearing a Guy Fawkes mask and a shomagh without the agal.
I love the rebellion that he was able to capture, and even more, I love that the Saudi newspaper Arab News decided to print it! For those of you that don’t quite get the importance of this newspaper printing this image, Guy Fawkes was one of the conspirators behind the Gunpowder Plot, which was meant to take down the House of Lords in the Palace of Westminster. So having millions of people living in one of the most repressive countries in the world view art about anarchism, which is really his legacy, is pretty defiant.
