Hi, my name is Ahmed Awad and through working with ArtParasites I’ve finally been able to realize my dream of creating a short film at 22 years old.
Because of the images that were shared by ArtParasites and special commissions I worked on for the magazine, I managed to get global recognition for my work, which has translated to funding.
Eritrea Studio is my creative child, a playground where I experiment with feelings through art.
Expressing my ideas on love, gender equality, politics and pain through art has always been helpful for me. I used my mind and heart to build expressive artwork through drawing, digital illustration and other creative composition methods.
It feels good to have my work valued by so many different people around the world. So what I wanted to say is thank you, to the readers who gave me the confidence and power to see my goals become real.
