Marjane Satrapi

What We Say: Satrapi uses simple illustrations to convey a powerful message in response to the West's dehumanisation of Iranian people. Her work covers major events from the Islamic revolution, fundamentalist regime, and Iran-Iraq war through the eyes of a child, empowering future generations with knowledge about the challenges faced by the Iranian people.

What They Say: “Satrapi's deceptively simple, almost whimsical drawings belie the seriousness and rich complexity of her story – but it’s also very funny too” - Emma Watson
