What motivated you to become an artist?
- Okay ... since I was young I have loved to do something for myself. At that age I used to watch our neighbour's son when he used to write the letter " Wow" differently. Then I started to copy him and try to make it better than him ... since that time I became interested into Arts :)
If you were a color, which one would you be?
- Blue ... It's my favorite color ... it is the sky :)
What is the strangest comment someone has said about your work?
- Well .. hummmm ... I think one day in one of my solo shows in Dubai .. one of the visitors was telling me that whenever she turns her head in the 4 angles on my artworks she sees another paintings!
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you as an artist?
- I was travelling with friends to Korea and one of them lost his passport in Dubai Airport, 2 minutes before the boarding and the whole plane was waiting for him until we found his passport in the garbage. He was lucky the Captain waited for him.
Share a secret tip.
- My artworks are simple to understand ... you need to ask me for the secret of each piece :)
