Still from ‘A.S.S.E.M.B.L.Y.’ (2016), a SnapChat exchange between artists Emma McGarry and Hydar Dewachi.

It was so nice meeting everyone and spending time to get to know you and get an insight into your work and process.

Here are some references that either I mentioned to you already or thought about on my way back that I think you might want to check out if/when you need some further inspirations.
