ARTISTS UNDER PRESSURE
This project is more personal than other projects, throughout these designs I am sharing small fragments of my experience in creating work that is provocative and subversive in Doha. We live in a society where an encounter with "Unfamiliarity" is a threat to culture and it's beliefs, and victimizing artists is somewhat normalized. In creating this work, I hope to push against cultural norms and aspire to make a change for all artists and for Subversive/provocative work to be accepted, and embraced. Let's not have artists under pressure.

In terms of working, I deconstructed letterforms and refined some artworks I have worked with in the past to break through a new platform of design wear. Both the designs and messaging on the garments are intentionally made to disturb the masses and provoke artists who go through the same experience as myself which the victimization of bold artists in the Gulf.
ARTISTS UNDER PRESSURE LOOKBOOK
The "Artists under pressure" design wear lookbook captures the exquisiteness of one's self expression and narration through pieces of garments.
