Mohamed Harb

Harb was born in 1979 in Gaza City where he lives and works. He obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Al Najah University in Nablus, 2001. He is a member of the Palestinian Association of Fine Artists. He has been working as a director at the Palestinian Broadcasting Cooperation in Gaza since 2003. Harb has also participated in many local, regional and international exhibitions, festivals and workshops, organized in Europe and different Arab countries. His art has been influenced by the ‘grey’ reality of the Palestinian issue which is reflected by this selection and use of colors. Nevertheless, the concepts and themes of the majority of his work investigate the hidden and obscure of human body. Since 1995, Harb has been working in plastic art as well as other contemporary fields of arts. Recently, he has become interested in photography, video art and documentary direction film as he has deep imagination in light formation art and image creation through a combination of art and technology. Harb is very active in organizing many exhibitions and workshops in Palestine and abroad. He received many local and international awards and several grants for his innovation not only in project implementation but also the use of IT and video techniques. Harb has been working on several projects for the past three years, including the artistic (Other Light) which has recently been shown at many countries. Harb, like many other artists, is still looking forward to reflecting the reality of his dream to build a better one in Gaza far away from grey colors.
