What's your favourite piece, and what's the best selling item?
It's very difficult to choose a favourite piece. I really like them all, because I don't paint anything I don't like and each time I am painting a piece it becomes my favourite.
However, if I had to choose, it would be YES for its simplicity; Bonjus for this beautiful pineapple and Waraq el Sham for the oriental intricate design.
As for the best selling items, I may say Bonjus and yellow Chiclets. Then comes the rolling paper (waraq el sham).
Is the younger generation interested in your pop offerings? If so how do you explain this appeal it has on them?
My typical customer is the person of my generation who had the same childhood and relates the same way I do to all these brands and objects. I also make sure that even though they are hand painted, they remain at a reasonable price so they are affordable to all. They also happen to be practical furniture. For example, my revisited tabliyeh is ideal by the bed and can be placed in the lap and used as a small table for the laptop or a cosy breakfast in bed.
Sometimes, it just feels good to remember how it was to hold a Bonjus at a birthday party.
