Princess Hijab

Princess Hijab is a guerilla artist who paints hijabs on women in advertisements around Paris. Her identity is unknown despite being notorious in art circles. She says: 

"I’m an advertising hijabist. In other words, I cover all advertising with a black veil, which is a dark symbol, a reference on pop culture, and a way to hide elegantly advertising. It is also a study on territories and identities."
