born 1990, Kandahar
residence: Kabul / Kandahar
Malina chose to study Realism art in Pakistan, and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Art Council Karachi in 2010. Soon after she returned to Kabul and found her niche in Graffiti Art after being introduced to contemporary art through workshops and joining the Berang Arts Association.
Malina then founded a local art group, Kandahar Fine Arts Association (KFAA), to create a thriving art scene in her deeply traditional and conservative hometown, which is one of the most dangerous places in Afghanistan.
Her art often reflects the vices of the society she lives in and the struggles of her generation. By portraying these elements in her art she hopes to give her society a social conscious she feels has been missing for some time now.
