What does creativity mean to you?
Creativity to me is anything that is out of the ordinary. Creativity means that I’m producing an artwork that is not expected of me and a type of production that exceeds my capabilities.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love the fact that I’m unleashing these crazy ideas in my head every day through visual art! This definition is a reflection of my thoughts to the audience.
How are you getting close to local audiences?
I get close to the local audience by introducing ideas that make them curious and drive them to know more about my work and concept. People can view my work and projects on Instagram and on my website.
Would you consider your approach to be innovative?
I have a message to deliver to people, which is introducing a new type of cartoon or exploring beyond the box that the newspaper gives me. To me, it is a challenge and an innovation at the same time. It’s a new method that I am using to connect Qatari spirit with Qatari comic and cartoons and to deliver them to the world! It’s not just comics and cartoons or a childish game. It is fully considered, and we are drawing it, building it and finding ways to advance it. Cartoons are no less considered than any other form of art.
How are you helping communities develop their own creative skills?
A creative person doesn’t need me to help them to be creative – they need me to motivate them. I’m motivating people around me to explore their ideas and what they have inside them. I want to become the first individual who breaks barriers and the existing cold surroundings to help motivate others! I’m changing the usual way of thinking about art in our community, and I aim to become the first ‘different’ individual by creating a safe environment that will motivate people.
What inspires you?
I want to express myself. My main mission is to deliver a message to the public.
