About

Born in Gaza City in 1979. Harb graduated with a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts from Al Najah University, in Nablus in 2001. To date, he has shown his work in three solo exhibitions; ‘’Ibda’at Tashkiliya’’ in Nablus (2001), ‘’Malameh Lam Taktamel’’ in Gaza City (2003) and ‘’Hiwar fi Adakira’’ in Bethlehem (2004). Harb also participated in many group exhibitions with local and international artists, including the 2-12 exhibition at the Gaza Arts and Crafts Village (2002) and Tin Al Ard (2003).

In a series of portraits, that look more like sketches of Palestinian women, Harb expresses his thoughts and feelings about the war. He sees women as the embodiment of life, a symbol of the future and the fertile land. Women as protectors of children and the guardians of the future have a special place in the eyes of this artist. His portraits depict women in a distorted yet potent manner reflecting the anguish that they endured and the hope that they convey as resilient matrons who guide and nurture the next generation.
