Ms Saffaa, Saudia Arabia

An underground protest art scene has gained momentum due to the design work of street artist and printmaker Ms Saffaa, a Saudi expat currently living in Australia. Mounting frustration with run-ins with authorities over her visa prompted her to create artwork speaking to her self-agency. The posters feature a woman’s face shrouded in the Saudi shemagh and the hashtag #iammyownguardian. 

The design, emblematic of the movement protesting guardianship, is now donned in the forms of T-shirts.
