“When I was an elementary student, I started painting. I always used to explore new painting books to imitate the paintings. Ever since, I work on sketching and I only use graphite pens. I was always one of those students who used to participate in the exhibitions around Hasakah. I participated in a few contests and was the first of my school several times, and a couple of times first of Hasakah. In 2014, I opened a teaching center for painting and so far, I have trained 300 students, and some of them are now great painters. In 2016, a huge explosion happened in 2016, I made a painting that was 8 meters long and hung it over the fallen over building. I dedicated that painting to all the victims and families of the victims of that explosion.”
