WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A NEW ARTIST STARTING OUT? //
The creative field is always a challenge for new artists. Usually at the beginning, we need a proper guidance for choosing the right path. I’m so fortunate to have a guide. Here in Dubai, the situation was very different. I saw a varieties of art forms from different nationalities and honestly, the healthy competition was really high. At that point, I realised, the regular art forms can’t be noticeable and hence decided to carve and develop a trademark style, as a result i am getting good opportunities now. Try to create Unique Artworks!
