“This piece came from the deepest parts of my soul and it represents our connection with what’s around us and how much it affects the way we perceive the world.
I am from Libya and in a country like mine it’s not easy sometimes to express the way you feel. Art was the only thing that made me get out of whatever cage I was in, it felt truly liberating. To create is to live.”
