Yes ...Its been really a great experience for me like a visitor who came here to spend our summer vacation. We went to Qatara and happened to see those marvellous Drawings of Ismail Azzam in Charcol. I don't know well to draw, but am a great fan of Art of any kind. Am really astonished of those masterpieces coz even though they came in front of me of their own, I couldn't been able to believe that they were drawn by a Human. That much divine touch is in each of his masterpieces. I know ..I konw i wrote little bit more on them, pardon me for that, because even now I'm that much exaggerated. Hearty congratz to you sir/ Ismail Azzam, and thanks a lot to you too Mr. Mohammed Zaini for your effort.
I'm pleased that I seen this website, precisely the proper information that I was trying to find! kbekfadbccgg
Really Ismail Azzam is great artist. Such a marvelous portrait I never seen. Best of luck. Can I get his email address ? Because I am an artist. I want to clarify some doubts with him.
