After moving from his birthplace of Afghanistan to Germany as a youth, Manzur Kargar encountered an entirely different scope from which to view women in culture.

Looming on billboards and in cinema, purveying the commercial iconography that abounded in mainstream media, these ladies inspired the artist to position them as goddesses within the context of contemporary consciousness. His signature paintings would become cutting-edge, Pop realism portraits: bold, sexy, and passionate works showcasing our unique mythological creatures of today. Father to a daughter himself, the fight for women’s equality and freedom is close to his heart and his paintings elevate women to modern matriarchs, empowered, free, and confident with their right to expression self-evident.
