If you haven’t heard of Mars Drum or her art, please catch up at:
After hearing Mars Drum interviewed on Bush Telegraph (ABC Radio National) we visited her exhibition “Beyond the Burka” – Oils on canvas.
For the past few years, Mars has been producing A3 sized paintings depicting the romantic adventures of Ned Kelly and Burka Woman.
Burka Woman is a Muslim refugee whom Ned rescued from the surf. These days, they enjoy life together in Australia and even find time to go to art galleries.
Mars Drum is passionate about about the need for non-Muslims to be open to Muslims and to women wearing the Burka.
