Trippin… Inside A World Within A World By Bader Qabazard

Upon returning to the Gulf he dedicated himself to advertising agencies, producing and directing for various commercial groups such as MTV, Saatchi & Saatchi, Impact BBDO and Disney Channel in the Middle East. Qabazard considers himself a digital artist and his work is stylized, personal and open to interpretation. Bader says, “When I’m in the mood I play around, I see shapes and forms that transcend into an endless path of imagination.
