RIYADH: Hatem Alkaka, a Saudi artist from Qatif, may just be 17 years old, but his creative vision is a galaxy of ideas driving him to create a student-led magazine, showcasing the voices and talents of the local Saudi art scene.

Alkaka, a high school student at Dhahran Ahliyya Schools, sees the beauty and color in the mundane elements of life.

“My art is a mashup of everything around me … (I) use my art as a vessel that captures the world through my own eyes,” he told Arab News.
