You main source of inspiration is…
It is the unconcious.

If you had the chance to have dinner with any artist in our present or past history who would it be? What would you ask them?
It would be Willem de Kooning. I would ask him about the almost tangible calm felt in his later works and how evident was the hustle and energy of his early works compared to later on in his life – what was it that precisely influenced these directions.

What do you do to relax?
Some solo Oud or piano listening, a trip to the sea and a deep sleep.

What’s your favorite city in the world? 
The Old City of Damascus.

How would you like to be remembered as an artist?
As an artist who deeply loved and respected his work.

Your art is…
The result of everything I see, hear and learn.
