Wasfa Kamal is a 23 year old BBC-featured digital artist located in Pakistan. She bases her illustrations on various subjects but most of her work revolves around stereotypes that have existed in the world for too long. Wasfa’s work features themes of gender equality and other universal social issues. Many of these pieces focus on women in Pakistan as she draws inspiration from the various social and cultural experiences she has observed while growing up. By highlighting important issues through artistic expression, Wasfa feels like she is, “in a small way, doing her part.” Her entire life has been centered around her role as an artist as she has realized that “design is art with a purpose and that illustration is a powerful tool for communication.” Such passion is reflected in her motive to create social change through illustrative work.
