Transcript:

Life is hard in Afghanistan.

But artist Mohammed Akram makes sure that his painting materials don't cost the earth – they’re just made of it.

He starts by scouring his neighbourhood for mud, dust and brick then grinds them down and finally mixes them together with home-made glue.

By painting with these materials Mohammed hopes to better capture his country’s character and its struggles.

Vocabulary:
