I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: Aloony89 :iconaloony89:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

My name is Allen (Allen Adnan), born in Shaqlawa, Erbil in northern Iraq, moved to Ankawa to finish my education in College (Food technology in college of Agriculture) in my senior year. A friendly person; I can be a good friend, passionate about art in general in love with sunlight.

:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

Searching for Inspiration I guess, I loved the diversity of artistic stuff in DeviantART and that's what makes it a good place to get my Inspiration from, make new friends, share my artistic side and Improve myself of course.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

Back to 2007, when I moved to Ankawa I used to work in a cultural society as web administrator, and had my hand on a camera they used to cover their events and activities,  and because I was coming a bit earlier to work it was about 5:30pm, a garden view was in my front of me - one day I gave It a try and went out and captured a series of photos generally for roses and converted them to black & white. What's important to be mentioned is that a particular photo draw more attention than others and many people liked it, since then I discovered my passion toward photography in general.

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

At first, an hobbyist Iraqi photographer inspired me a lot - I love his works, I also love watching movies, reading magazines, and after catching up with DeviantART I found plenty of stuff to get inspired by. So I decided to buy me a Camera and it was Nikon D90 with its kit lens and a (50mm f/1.8 D) lens since I like to take portraits. I feel super excited to take photos in lazy mornings, day offs, sunny afternoons and cloudy days.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I'm still a hobbyist but taking photography as a profession is in my consideration. Probably a wedding photographer or a celeb photographer.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

Hmm, a street view I took from above the bridge, What goes around comes around - I loved the mood and it was inspired by Tobias Koch, I loved the angle & the symmetry. It's my favorite. Since it has sort of a motion in it and the title fits the photo I guess, I intended it to have a vivid color and deep contrast, making it more movie like scene.

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

Yes I have, since I am still an amateur photographer and I have my own doubts toward my work, I always wanted to do my best to achieve the results that I wanted. And I guess everybody should be somehow; in the past I was unsure where I want to go with my work.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

Yes, it helped me to see thing differently and think creatively.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

Yes, traveling most probably since I'm busy with studying & working at the same time.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

I would like to thank my followers who admire my work and pretty much everybody who's been a source of inspiration for me and supported me. Doing any type of Art is a beautiful way to express things in life. It will certainly improve you and the way you think. Regards from Iraq!
