Name: Maysoun AlTamimi
Occupation: Full time illustrator, artist and writer
Medium: I am like a kid exploring colors
What got you started?
It started suddenly but then I went to pursue it long term when I decided to be a professional artist. Now I use my drawings as part of new cute products.
Is your work the result of sudden inspiration or long term planning? How do you think up your concepts?
My concepts or inspiration come from day to day life or the Saudi culture.
What do you think of the art scene in Riyadh? Anything you’d like to see changed?
I think we are in the middle of an artistic revolution in Riyadh. I would love to see the Saudi society being more accepting of all kinds of art pieces and art forms.
Who are your role models?
I like the work of Donald Robertson, Gill Button and Renate Groenewoud.
What does being creative mean to you?
Simplicity in expressing art— a neat, colorful piece of art is what we need.
