Ahed Izhiman is a visual artist living and working in Jerusalem. Izhiman studied at the Fine Arts Academy in Florence in 2004 and cofounded ARTLAB Jerusalem, the first multimedia lab in Jerusalem for visual arts and space-sharing. Izhiman is a board member at The Palestinian Art Court (al-Hoash) and SUNBULA, prominent cultural institutions in Palestine specializing in social development and empowerment through art.
Izhiman uses a variety of media such as photography, painting, sketches, and video art. He lived through the Second Intifada trying to understand what it meant to be a Jerusalemite with so many restrictions and limitations, and this duality is reflected in much of his work. He has exhibited his artwork in a number of national and international exhibitions in Palestine, Jordan, the United Kingdom, and France.
His latest installation, The Ring (2017), is featured in Jerusalem Lives, the inaugural exhibit of the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit. His Paper Planes series (2014) was inspired by his work with vulnerable children in the Hebron area for UNICEF, and he is currently developing a project related to the Dead Sea, which he initially started in 2012 and never completed.
Izhiman won UNICEF’s Regional Award for Children’s Rights for his project The Water of Area C, which he produced in Yatta, southern Hebron.
He has participated in many local and international biennials, including in the 2012 Festival International de Programmes Audiovisuels (Biarritz, France); al-Hoash: The Palestinian Art Court (Jerusalem, 2015); and Qalandiya International’s The People of the Sea exhibit (Haifa, 2016). Izhiman also curated the exhibition Al Marom at al-Hoash (2017).
