I would love to believe that one of these days I will have my own special school of art, which would be a combination of Primitive art with Middle Eastern art. I will feel the most successful if I become almost instantly recognized by anyone who sees one of my paintings. Infact I do believe that a painters unique style is more important than the content of his/her paintings. I also believe that one of the "duties" of the artist is to make the public happy when they look at one of his/her paintings. This I also think should be the case , particularly in a world with alot of sadness. I thus hope to make my viewer in a better mood after looking at my paintings.
