Younus Backer

Younus is a freelance illustrator currently working in Sharjah, UAE. He designs characters, oil paints, illustrates, animates, shoots and edits videos. He nosedived into illustration, scribbling and sketching on anything and everything in the nineties when anime and cartoons set fire to his imagination. His digital artworks brim with an enrapturing obsession with details, as layers of dimensions take shape like dreams within dreams. His monochrome reports from the bleak suburbia of sanity, build hyper realities out of snapshots seemingly stitched together from daydreams. Noted for their delicate intensity, Younus' works are emotional statements that overlap the innate friction of life seeking the ultimate ideal.
