For more than a decade Afghanistan has been
on our news screens portraying it locked in war and occupied by coalition
But by night, armed with art materials made with salvaged paint from the tank maintenance crews and cardboard stencils, striking street art has been made by the occupying soldiers.
These enlisted street artists tagged the protective concrete walls put up around the city with emotionally charged images.
From reproduction of WWII pin-ups to subversive messages derived from anti-establishment cult film Fight Club, these graffiti artworks are expressions of the frustration and stress felt by the soldiers.
