Azim is one of my favorite artists in the UAE. His work is work is easily described as magical and sometimes leaning towards whimsical.
What I adore the most is his storytelling, which most arabs can relate to some way or the other. Bonus, his lil zines are incredibly neat with such nice paper.
Experiencing Nasir’s work a couple of years ago, for the first time was a real treat. Feelings ranged from whoa surrealism whoa to this feels pleasantly light, I need more. I think to some extent, most of my work is heavily inspired by him. He’s a beautiful human & we need more beautiful humans who share their pieces/parts of them in this planet.
Abjad Hawaz Fanan is a gorgeous zine, made out of recycled/craft paper. I recommend this to anyone trying to create more often but feels stuck or unmotivated. Even though this zine targets a very young age group, I think it would make the perfect gift to anyone who wants to explore their creative side. Definitely treat yo self & someone else to this recycled bundle of joy.
Everything is so neat, the colors are uplifting and it’s really difficult not to smile while going through the pages of her zines/comics.
