This Artist Is Redefining Desi Aunties By Making Them Street Fighters
Signature moves include the "masala cloud" and the "salwar-sneaker combo kick".
Meet Hana, an Indo-Persian artist and writer based in Toronto, who wants to "remix" your perception of the infamous "aunty" stereotype.
"Aunties" are women of desi communities who are often regarded as being nosy, gossipy and judgmental when actually "they can be badass, resilient, determined women," Hana told BuzzFeed.
"These are the aunties we love, and even the ones that sometimes get on our nerves, reimagined as a fearsome posse that kicks ass and are united by their red dupattas," says Hana.
These aunties even have signature moves.
They use aunty paraphernalia as deadly weapons against the scum of the streets.
Hana also draws about what it's like to be brown in the west, and the burden of assimilation and racism that comes with it.
