Kader has always been fascinated by art, and he began to invest himself in it because he wanted to express himself and the first means of communication he found was photography which he discovered with Instagram. For photography he needed clothes which were not accessible or didn’t correspond to his taste so he began to make his own clothes, and today he launch his own clothing and accessory line which is This brand aims to be a brand which promotes lifestyle mixed with tradition and modernity, using organic components as linen, cotton, wood, and leather to manufacture the clothes and accessories.

Most of the time he discussed subjects such as identity, or how Africans defines themselves in nowadays? Which place did they have in this globalize world and this tendency to standardize cultures? How gender lines have been blurred over the years? or the impact of our actions on the environment?

In this adventure he is more interested by collaborations with others artist because sharing is what makes art, art.
