"Xenophobia Leads to War / You're The Suspect" ....... by Fazeel Chauhan
"Profiles in Racism" ....... Fazeel Chauhan
"Religious EpiCenter" ....... Fazeel Chauhan
The work is greatly influenced by many teachers, and by films and documentaries from around the world. Looking at a subject from the prisms of colonization, sociology, war, history, politics, reverse anthropology and psychology, provides images of these cross-sections.
I'm greatly inspired by the poetry and music of the Clash, Fela, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rumi, Iqbal and Robert Bly.
I draw from many forms of art, which communicate a clear and moving message, emphasizing content over form.
My observations and narratives are frequently about un-popular subjects and intersections of east plus west. They often examine which are the standards, values and measurements being used to define and judge "the other".
