Born in Gaza in 1985. Matar was awarded a Bachelors degree in educational art from Al-Aqsa University, Gaza in 2007. Despite her young age, she participated in a large number of exhibitions and acted as mentor to the youth. Matar collaborated on several projects with European artists and participated in several local exhibitions and workshops in Gaza in cooperation with A.M Qattan Foundation, French Cultural Centre and others. Her work was also displayed at international exhibitions in Geneva and France.
Matar, who lives in the profound challenges of Gaza, has the creativity to see beyond the walls and paint with such vibrant colors and a wild imagination that is reminiscent of Joan Miró’s work, yet distinctly her own creation. There is no doubt in many curators’ minds, familiar with her work, that she is destined for greatness. Buying her work now, is by all means an excellent investment.
