Midhat Abbas

USA Festival Coordinator

Interdisciplinary approach toward arts helped me broaden my scope, approach and experience towards meaningful living. Being an 80’s kid I felt a strong kinship with the digital revolution and that’s how my art practice transitioned from paint and brush to camera and video. Relationship with space and time in the context of culture and religion played a vital role in my processes. Geopolitical theater added fuel to my imagination. In such an atmosphere I was lucky enough to develop projects that integrated arts with education paving the way for the future generations.
