But the Syrian-born artist hash't always been able to live out his dream like this. In fact, the talented illustrator had to flee his home country due to the ongoing conflict and now resides in Seattle where his work has quickly been discovered.
Sharing the image of himself and Angelina at the Constellation Art Galleryon his Instagram page - which has approximately 47.5k followers - he wrote: "Just added to a gallery last week."
