“Art can have big spiritual impacts on the people,” said Attaee.
Attaee said he uses abstraction method in his artworks which is a modern way of painting.
“I think it is a kind of fighting. We do not sell much here, but I want to promote art,” Attaee said.
The galleries have turned into a place where artists produce new pieces and sell them to art lovers.
“Some people are interested in arts, even if they do not come in, they watch from window,s” Hamidullah, a designer said.
The art of painting has a long history in Afghanistan and even some researches say the first oil painting was made in caves in Bamiyan province.
In addition to paintings in Bamiyan caves, Afghan well-known artists such as Kamaluddin Behzad and Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi indicate that art and painting have been practiced by artistes for long time here.
