On the bustling corner of a street-side café over a cup of Turkish coffee, the silence is broken by a young boy calling for his companions. In that brief moment, Yalla Habibi, the Arabic phrase for ‘Let’s go, my friends,’ perfectly captured that carefree spirit of childhood and adventure, juxtaposed in this piece by the darker elements representing the uncertainty of the unknown.
Based on a photograph I took, this visually arresting true-to-life piece was created using a combination of photography and digital painting techniques. Its graffiti-style backdrop and heavy contrast between light and shade make it a great focal point in any room.
