Hazem Harb - Painting 3

Harb’s artworks seek the fragility of human beings and their way of expressing suffering. Of course most particularly the Palestinian suffering which tends to be Harb’s main inspiration. His paintings include abstract shaping of refugees, ones that didn’t choose to yet tend to belong to the land of nowhere with their ghastly figures. He worked on a selective amount of photography aside from fine art as well.

Filistin Ashabab’s Logo

Filistin Ashabab monthly contests has art, photography and writing/literature as subcontests to it. Within the art contest, there isn’t a big number of submissions made, yet all the artworks qualified are really interesting and show great talent. There is a possibility that you can still vote, yet at some parts in the website it states names of winner artists so it’s not definite if the contest is still running or not.
