He catches the beauty in people

 Ahmed is an artist. He learnt on his own to draw people. He doesn't have the best colours and the best equipment.

And exactly this was what I thought while I looked his work. It is easy to call yourself an artist if you have everything which makes your work easy.

But if you have just the easiest things, and you learned on your own how to use it in the right way to get the result you want - then you are a genius. Even if not everyone around you realised that. I realized his genius when he told me that he was sad that someone didn't like this picture.

He painted a woman and she was upset that he painted her teeth in his way of beauty. He told me: "I can make a different but I don't want I give her back her money." At least, Ahmed is a genius and live.

He is following his heart which is not always easy. For the Dahabiens: you will find him in Mashraba. Soon he is planning to open his own shop.
