Lives and works in Doha, Qatar
My paintings and sculptures depict cartoonish objects and figurative elements in flattened and sometimes stage-like environments. I use a broad variety of media, including oils, gouache, 3D printed plastics, ceramics, fiber, found objects, and others, to produce artworks that I imagine moving in and out of two and three dimensional space. Through my work, I explore collage-like layered realities, virtuality and role play, world building, and the charismatic power of objects.
