He started this art quite a while since he was young, during nursery until now, but seriously he came to start in 2018 and made it a business after reserch was enough.

"The business is very good as I love drawing that gives me joy in life, it gives me an income to meet a variety of needs" said Idd.

 Challenges exist.

"Material for our activities are noy readily available since we do not have enough paint manufacturing facilities so it has made it difficult to access equipment, as many as three hardware stores this causes time to import directly from abroad as china"

Parents contributions on his passion

Did Pandemic affect him as an artist?

Artists depends much on activeness of tourism sector. During the pandemic many sectors including Tourism sector has been facing difficulties due to several reasons.

"Corona has affected not only me but all artists in the country due to the borders of the country being shut down causing tourists not to come to our country who were actually best customers in our businesses"
