Antar told us that it can get overwhelming to be trusted to design something for such big names and then have millions of people around the world see it and judge it, but that it’s equally exciting.
Born and raised in Lebanon, Antar moved with his family to Australia where he lived for 8 years and studied Industrial and Product Design at RMIT University. Most of his projects revolved around automotive design, he told us.
He’s always been interested in cars and design and managed to mesh those passions into what he is doing today.
Now, he’s taking on the world in racing car livery design while based in Lebanon.
“What makes this whole thing even more special is that I’m doing it from Lebanon. I know so many Lebanese people don’t get the opportunity to reach their goals because, well, it’s Lebanon we’re talking about…” he said regrettably.
“It’s sad but we have so much potential in the country,” he assured, adding that he felt fortunate to have been able to have been exposed to the outside world.
“But wherever we are, we (Lebanese) can be achievers and pioneers,” he said, feeling proud to represent his country in such a unique domain.
