Hello! Welcome back to my blog. Last time I posted it was an interview with Oreoluwa Ibitayo and since I am really celebrating creativity this month I felt I needed to do another interview and this time with the talented digital artist Fahd Bello whose work I have been following for years and I just love everything about his art and designs. Trust me when you see his art you will definitely say “WOW”. Because of his amazing work, I had to interview him, Take a look:
Describe yourself and what you do?
My name is Fahd Bello, sometimes called Fahdart. I’m 20, born on June 2nd from Kogi State. I’m a digital artist and I practice surrealism 😬 I also skate too.
What can you say is the inspiration behind your work?
Practically my art is the reflection of my past and present. I’m inspired by the life I live, the things I see, the events that happen and the stories I hear.
Who is the most inspirational person to you?
It may be unusual but the most inspirational person to me is Leonardo da Vinci. He was known for art and science amongst other subjects. I admire his ability to practice more than one craft at a time. So he has a strong influence on me.
Which three words describe you best?
When and how did you start?
I was about 11/12 when I started. I remember watching my elder brother make drawings of anime characters, I watched him every day until one day I decided to start drawing too. I actually became addicted to it. Since that day I never stopped making art
What challenges have you faced or do you face?
Before I fully went digital, I used to draw and paint a lot, then it was always an issue getting the right instruments to complete my artworks. Now I have my laptop, the only challenge I face is the artist block.
Do your parents support your work or did you have to rebel?
Yeah, I’m getting full support from both sides.
What do you love about your designs?
Mehnn, everythingggg, especially the colours and the surrealistic nature.
So far what is your greatest achievement?
I was featured and interviewed on a Nike advert.
What is your dream project?
To own a funny animated sitcom just like family guy, rick and morty, American dad etc.
What is your goal professionally?
To be successful off my art. Own a big white building containing all my artworks and for my name to be amongst the great names in the world of art.
Where do you see yourself and your brand in 5 years?
In five years I see myself outside the country, making money, creating artworks and selling out exhibitions.
Is there anything you would like to say to upcoming artists out there?
keep your heads up, stay focused, build upon your crafts, take risks, never give up, and succeed.
Well, that’s all on this interview, take a look at my favourite designs from Fahd:
