“I have been living in Hawler for several years now, from what I have seen, I know for sure that Hawler is a city of coexistence. Apart from me as an Arab, I have seen many other nationalities living peacefully same as I do. I paint for a living. Everyday I go to near Qalat and spend a peaceful day. What makes me happy the most is that the people also appreciate my work. It doesn’t matter to me whether the individuals I paint are politicians, athletes, or artists, what matters is that I deliver what is asked from me.
I admit that I do take money for my work, but that has never been the standard for what I do because I usually enjoy the works that I do for free much more.”
