At the core of my being, I am an exhibited photographer and former PHP/C++ programmer and designer. Instead of rejecting AI like so many artists do, I have embraced this technology. I use AI extensively in my work, research, and every aspect of my creative process. Specifically, I utilize StableDiffusion , GEN2, AUTOCHATGPT and Leonardo for my creations, and I also train my own AI models using these platforms. However, I must admit that I am still on a mid-journey, with many forbidden words and a lack of open-source transparency. Nevertheless, I believe that AI has the potential to revolutionize the art world, and I am excited to be at the forefront of this new movement.
My works are a fusion of real photographs that I have taken and AI-generated creations trained on my own photos. Some of these works comprise over 100 layers, which I use to enhance lighting, skin texture, shadows, eyes, and more. In addition to Photoshop, I use a range of photographic tools, such as the Topaz suite and Blender, to push the boundaries of what is possible. Some of my creations are so large that they take up to 10 gigabytes of storage space. But let’s get down to the facts.
I hold multiple nationalities, including French, and am fluent in five languages: French, English, Arabic, Turkish, and Kurdish (Kurmanji). However, these languages did not come to me naturally. I learned some in my childhood and pursued formal education for others. As you may have guessed, I am of Middle Eastern origin. As for my religious beliefs, I prefer to keep those private. My diverse background and language skills have allowed me to connect with people from all over the world and gain a unique perspective on different cultures. In my work, I strive to incorporate this diversity by creating pieces that transcend cultural boundaries and speak to a global audience. I believe that art has the power to unite people from all walks of life, and I am committed to using my skills and experiences to make a positive impact in the world.
In terms of politics, I identify as left-wing, specifically as a socialist or even further left. I strongly believe in women’s rights, the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, immigration, and the acceptance of all differences, whether they be financial, religious, or otherwise. Despite my political leanings, I have nothing against conservatives, and I enjoy debating with them. In fact, I relish the opportunity to persuade those who hold differing views from my own. While my art is deeply political and reflects my values, I am not affiliated with any specific political party or organization. I believe that art has the ability to bring people together, regardless of their political beliefs, and I strive to create works that promote empathy, understanding, and social change. Ultimately, my goal is to use my art to make a positive impact on the world and to encourage others to do the same.
