Ayman Issa

Country: Palestinian Territory, Occupied
Nationality: Palestinian


Born in Gaza in 1974. He graduated with a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from Al Najah University in Nablus in 1999. That year, he participated in the Rome Biennale, as well as exhibitions at the League of Palestinian Artists and Dar Al Karama in Ramallah. In addition, Ayman exhibited his work in France, UK, Italy and the region.

With an almost distinct style of painting that uses very vibrant colors and enlarged human figures (mostly women); Ayman’s paintings are easily recognizable to anyone who is familiar with his work. The centrality of the large voluptuous female bodies in his paintings is so clear, as if to pay a tribute and celebrate the beauty of women’s fecundity, in the age of anorexic models and fraudulent air brushing of images. Ayman Issa is definitely a Gaza based artist to watch, as he is distained for greatness.
