Born in Tripoli, Lebanon, I travelled to Australia in 2011 in pursuit of studying visual arts. A telecommunications engineer graduate and 1 year study of cinematography, I left behind my parents and eleven siblings as I set off on my artistic journey. Applying my creative vision then led to diplomas in photo-imaging and visual arts from Melbourne Polytechnic, winning best conceptual folio with each.
In 2014, my passion for cinema and photography eventually developed into a body of digital art works, creating images that delve into the dreamlike world of personal experiences, emotional turmoil, and the complexities of isolation that came from starting a new life in a new country. Although dealing with moving and serious emotions, my works are almost hopeful, and I believe that “sometimes imagination is better than reality”.
