Farija Mehmeti

slikarka

Dobijam dosta pozitivnih komentara na moj rad, ali je uvek I mnogo ljudi koji kažu da su portreti tužni, da lica Romkinja izgledaju tužno. Romkinje su prisiljavane na prerane brakove, a neke su prodate svojim muževima. Na svojim slikama želim da prikažem tu emociju.

Mehmeti, who was inspired to begin painting after seeing her brother’s paintings depicting scenes of Roma life, uses her paintings to showcase traditional Roma dress and promote conversation about Roma culture. “God gave me this talent,” said Mehmeti, who hopes to encourage other Roma women to take part in artistic expression.
