Breaking Chains: Deconstructing Patriarchal Narratives with Art

Anwar Mahdi tells us a bit about himself:

I’m a Filipinx/Arab artist based in Chicago and I focus on retelling my story of abuse and discrimination by projecting myself onto divine beings, fusing mythological narratives and events in my life in order to challenge and destroy patriarchal ideals upheld within the pantheon.
