She built a fearless wall of women during the CAA protests
The Muslim women-led protest at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi – often described as the ‘Ground Zero’ of the protests – against India’s new citizenship law which the protestors call unjust has seen women from all walks of life participate. Art has been used by many of the protestors to convey their angst and to inspire others to join in with their cause. Spreading messages of peace, love, and unity through posters and wall art. Shilo Shiv Suleman is a Bengaluru-based artist who has come to Shaheen Bagh to contribute to the movement with her art. She leads the Fearless Collective, a global movement of artists, which works to reclaim spaces for women. Fearless began in 2012 with a single poster made by Indian artist Shilo Shiv Suleman in response to a moment of national trauma. Over the past 7 years, Shilo has developed a Public Art methodology that places affirmations at the center of social change; using beauty as resistance and fearlessness as a tool for reclaiming public space.
