As an awkward child, drawing on books, seats, and walls was my way to make friends in school after moving to a new country. But it soon turned into more than just a hobby. I started to realize the importance of (visual) narratives in making us feel at ‘home’. Now, as an artist and a researcher in Cultural Analysis, I’m intrigued by the potential of visual art forms in giving voice and imagary to our solitary and collective struggles and moments of joy within the consumerist capitalist society that defines our worth based on the limiting notions of productivity and success. I anchor my work in the ambiguity and fluidity that simplicity offers, and try to remain close to my childhood doodles while exploring my dream of a form of resistance that is rooted in opacity.
