The undercurrent of my work is an appeal to our common humanity and shared universal human values. Through my symbiotic artistic expression of two entwined cultures, I hope to reach beyond the socio-political divisions of fundamentalism and Islamophobia and motivate a positive change in the conception of ‘the other’ as culturally or spiritually impermeable. In my works, I aim to appeal to the universal soul of our human condition, that which is within each of us and that transcends time and geographical space.
