When we first hear the word monsters, freaky and ugly faces come to mind, but in the city of Arabia, Jeddah, stands a doodler that will turn your definition of monster upside down.
Basma Amin, known by her pen name “Bihh” shows another definition of the word monsters by her unique way of illustrating them with happy faces and painting them with bright colors. She is taking monsters on another level.
Why do you and on what purpose do you create and make art?
How do you want your art to affect and influence your audience?
As an artist, on what level can you categorize yourself?
What’s the thing that people will always notice on your art?
Do you think your art can be a tool or the betterment of this world?
Anyone who would see her works would always have a smile on their faces, she doesn’t just showcases the unusual beauty of these cute creatures but also sends a message that our mind can do and draw many things if we just take part of what we really want to do and show the world, through her intricate and delicate doodling she doesn’t notice how much inspiration she gives to her audience, with her works, people can say that art is really fun to do and that art requires much patience because with good patience stands a glorious victory or result. masha’Allah.
“Never quit on what you love drawing no matter how ugly it seems, nothing ever comes easy at first; and thats the joy of it. Looking back at your old work and realizing how much you’ve improved and how much your skills have developed that is what I call joy, and an achievement. Art comes in many forms, and if yours don’t fit in the normal categories people give, create your own on and start spreading it! “
She’s such a sweet girl and an amazing one, and yes she is Muslim and loves Islam, a proud Arabian
