Alexandra is a French-Lebanese illustrator and animator. Also known as Kibok on social media (@kibok.art). She is as much inspired by big worldwide events as she is from her everyday life, and also loves to explore more imaginary universes. Through her art she tries to deliver a message of love and hope.

HER INSPIRATION

While drawing, I visualised myself at my home in Lebanon - one of my favorite place on earth - which allowed me to feel all the unconditional love and safety this place gives me. This way, not only inspiration came to me easily, but it came from a good place in my heart. Thinking of my family and my loved ones, the smell of the flowers my mom would pick from our garden to make beautiful bouquets, my grand mother’s delicious homemade food, the smell of coffee, the charming nature surrounding my home and sunsets by the sea are all key to both drawings’ inspiration.
