What part of your work is the most creative one?
The interaction, or the reaction.
I think artists focus more on this than work itself. Especially me when, when it’s so public and out there. I enjoy the most really hidden moments because street art and executing big murals is an ugly process. It’s very messy, you get paint all over the place. In Jordan it’s either hot or too cold, it’s not the feel “yoga-like” (laughs), to feel calm inside. And it’s physically exhausting. So most of the process is ugly but there are these key moments that keep you hooked for the next moment of it. Either it’s an interaction with someone, especially kids in Jordan because they are not exposed to lots of art in general. So interacting with that is always fun.
There are always a lot of interactions and experiences in different projects, especially with children. They still have this magic inside of them, that is easy to tab into or to explore. And to see them discovering a new thing. While with adults, you have to negotiate your way into their imagination, cause they have their own sets of either beliefs or opinions.But yeah, seeing someone new receiving an introduction into my work just by observing for 3-5 days is just pleasing. You see it through their ideas and think “Ah, this is why I enjoy it.” It’s like a kind reminder in some way.
