It isn’t surprising that Apple has roped in talented musician Usman Riaz to present a live demo of his art works and share with audiences — not only do his fingers work magic on a guitar and piano, but he also has mad drawing skills.

The youngest TedGlobal Fellow – from Karachi — will be giving a live demo of his art work process for upcoming animated film The Glassworker, along with other works using the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil, and ‪Paper‬ by FiftyThree‬.

Usman Riaz named as the youngest ever TED senior fellow

Usman shared the poster of the event with fans:

He will be joined by Rachel Romano of the FiftyThree team who will also share tips on making the most of the app that allows artists to create art in a whole new way.

Those interested can RSVP here.

He also shared a teaser of his forthcoming animated movie on his Facebook page, Mano Animation Studios, the special one-minute teaser of which will debut at TED 2016:
