Growing up in a society , he considered as limited and conservative, Berahna wondered, as a little boy, what was hidden under the veil and why they tried desperately to hide physical and abstract truths. Feeling the inner unease and the urge to break through the darkened and hidden spheres, he began to model faces and bodies despite strict prohibitions by Islamic religion and the Afghan state. Whereas leaves, flowers and fishes were taught in art studies, human nature remained largely taboo.
Berahna's art is socially critical. His talent not only convinced in competitions, but also enabled him through a state scholarship to study abroad and adapt his environment to his abilities. After his time as a student in Moscow, as a refugee in Germany and as a traveler around the world, Berahna has found his place in Kassel, and his home in the studio. Here, the artist has created his own world in which he finds peace and has never forgotten the joy of creating art.
