Award-winning digital artist Simon Cosmas Michael popularly known as Simon Rieber is revolutionizing the Tanzanian arts and Entertainment industry as he advocates for self- independence among the youth.
Today he is really successful in his life but his journey wasn’t a cakewalk, in an interview with a television in Tanzania, Rieber said, when he started painting, no one cared to his work but he didn’t give up and that is the reason for his success. He has always been a person who believes in passion and dedication.
He still keeps working hard to grow professionally as well as personally. He was busy building his professional life and that’s what sets him different from others. He is improving his skills with the passage of time and all we know is that it will help him to achieve his dreams.
Now the Internet knows Simon as an expert digital illustration, author and young entrepreneur. He had more than 50+ artworks drawn by his hand. He already published his eBook on google, amazon and Goodreads. That’s why google verified him as a visual artist and author on google search engine. Microsoft Bing and yahoo! also verified Simon Rieber on their search engines as an artist.
Power of the youth
“Business Without Entertainment is not complete, so I have to think outside the box to bring motivation to my customers, but also this is a job opportunity for my fellow young people with dreams and goals far” says Simon Rieber.
Simon Rieber was raised in a low income single-family home. He grew up with no role models, and eventually, he had been one of those people who lacked proper guidance. He was not privileged to have a planned life, hence, he took the lead and built his own life. He has always been a person who craves knowledge and puts it to use by helping others. This is what he characterizes as his natural traits. And when he saw his help benefiting others, he was inspired. He channelized all his hard work and discipline to have it all. It wasn’t easy but he did not give up and that is the reason for his success today.
In 2020 Rieber was nominated at Tanzania’s Umoja Prize for Tanzanian Contemporary art as “Best Male Artist On The Digital”.
