KA-CHING! MINE AND OURS
My proudest moment as an artist is probably the first time I got paid for doing what I love.
It’s inspiring to see artists I’ve looked up to my entire life come here through Dubai Walls. The public art scene here has been growing over the past years [Dubai Walls] marks the first time I’ve seen the human form being painted publicly. We needed someone to break down barriers and show the it could be done in a beautiful way.
What’s for breakfast? Jazz
On Fridays, we have breakfast together as a family and while eating we play jazz, which is also a very integral part of our day. My family is from Baghdad, Iraq, but I was born and raised in London. I came to Dubai three years ago because of my wife, Reem, who was raised in the UAE, before moving to the UK, where we met. Her job transferred her here and it was a good opportunity for me too.
