Ms Ghafari, whose parents came to Norway in the 1980s as asylum seekers fleeing from Iran, was born here.

Rejecting the teaching of a historical fine art narrative, she is self-taught, tackling issues faced by second generation immigrant outsiders wishing to express themselves as a need.

“People need to be open instead of listening to the media’s scaremongering,” she explained. “They should get to know others first before judging who they are.”

How does your art express and embody this?

“It reflects the milieu where I come from. I used to steal my father’s car paint to paint. My art embodies what we do, how we walk and talk, what we know.”

Nothing Exists Alone premieres, Friday, and runs until 18th July.
