‘Ms Saffaa is a Saudi artist currently studying a PHD in Australia. As part of her practice she creates murals championing the freedom of women in Saudi Arabia, in particular drawing attention to the prohibitive Guardianship laws. Her work, seen on Twitter, was taken up by a grass-roots movement. in Saudi Arabia and is now synonymous with the struggle to end these laws. In February this year her mural in Melbourne’s Brunswick was vandalised just a week after it was finished.’
