"What meaning does doing art have for you?"
Art for me is a source of strength, something that cleanses
my soul and uplifts my spirit. Art has been my survival
factor, giving meaning to life and letting me express myself.
It is something necessary in the surroundings I live in. It's
rather a weapon that I use against increasing extremism in
attitudes of some people in our community. Art is love and
is for love. It is for conveying the message of love and making
people closer, therefore, I believe it is the most important
tool to bring about peace in our daily lives and in the whole
world. I am incomplete without art and I am stronger and
expressive with art. It is a language that I know the best. I
connect to other people and myself through art, making it an
essential part of my life.
