I embarked on my creative journey in 1997 when working on print material in a small printing press whilst studying in the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus-Syria.
After graduating I worked extensively in post production, which helped me to gather valuable knowledge in the areas of Character Design, special effects for TV series and TV commercials.
After moving to Dubai in 2001, I started working excessively in advertising industry, where I was able to use my vast experience as a digital artist and win various local and international renowned awards. In late 2010 I moved to Munich and started working as 2D/3D Digital Artist focusing on gaming, post production and various areas in the art and design industry.
With regards to my broad tool set, I master various programs such as Z-Brush, Autodesk 3ds Max, Adobe (Photoshop, Aftereffect, illustrator), Substance Painter and Designer, Keyshot, Painter, Unreal Engine 4, Unity 3D, Nintendoware. I have experience in Real-time, Augmented reality, Virtual reality, Digital and traditional sculpting, modeling, animation, rendering, texturing, concept art, motion graphic. Eye for sketching, Arabic calligraphy, watercolor drawing, airbrush and ink painting
Growing up in the oldest capital in the world with its distinctive oriental charm and ancient cultural mix combined with my vast work experience in modern Dubai and Munich helped me to develop my very unique art style which I am sure will enchant you as well!
