"Social media is the best tool we have available to showcase and express our art. When I do a new piece of street art I will take a photo and share it on social media. This enables all of my followers, friends and fans to comment, share and like the work I do. But also provide criticism. You can’t create this type of dialogue on the streets."
"My dream is to have my name be synonymous to Saudi art."
