“Inspiration comes to express our inner self.”
Sherin’s art expresses her Kurdish identity through drawing on the sufferings of the country and her experience and situation as a refugee, and her artworks that express her homeland are favoured as a priority. As well as this, themes of joy, hope and memories of the past, are expressed and conveyed through her art, especially through painting. Sherin has been involved in art from a young age due to it being considered a talent, and art inspired her as a form of expression. Through collaborating with UWE, Sherin has felt positive about sharing her work with people who acknowledge artwork through beauty and expressive appreciation.
Sherin has been participating in BRAC for two years, and it has helped her greatly to see herself as an artist socially, psychologically and in the BRAC community, which has led to a sense of pride. Through being a member of BRAC, Sherin has been able to share her art in an environment which inspires her and the BRAC community to express their position in society and is proof that they are a part of it.
