Dubai taxi driver is UAE’s hottest new artist

On shift from 4 p.m. until 4 a.m. daily, Taxi driver Hamza Erimakunnath journeys Dubai roads to earn his livelihood and support his family back home in Kerala, India. However, he uses his precious free time to practice an extraordinary talent.

The calendar represents the enormous talent and commitment of the 39-year-old taxi driver who has pursued his passion for painting despite the demands of a hectic job.
