Most of my artworks using chimeric animals as the subject matter to personify human character and crisis. For ‘Mad Dog and The Superficial Inside’, ‘Hooreyy!!! Supercow Coming!!!’ and ‘Kingdom of Fake Crisis’; the theme lingers on humanity and world peace, following the Israeli illegal occupation in Palestine while the rest of the artworks reflects the issues of ethics in the local art scene.
