A graffiti artist in Paris has been going around the city incognito late at night and painting face veils over models displayed in posters and billboards.

The woman, who calls herself "Princess Hijab", says the so-called "hijab-ising" of the models is just art and not a religious statement.

Al Jazeera followed her one night.
