Mohammed Al-Hawajri was born in the Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip in 1976. In 20089, he received a grant for a residency at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris.
Al-Hawajri seeks to shed light on his harsh reality through satirical and beautiful subject matter; he presents an intimate and personal portrayal of the status quo and attempts to reflect the grim realities of his circumstances in creative forms. Due to a lack of available media, he has made use of animal bones and spices to express his thoughts and ideas about his surrounding society.
Between 1999 and 2001, Al-Hawajri participated in the Darat al Funun Summer Academy in Amman, where he was awarded first prize at the closing exhibition. He has also participated in exhibitions in Palestine, the United Kingdom, Italy, Jordan, France, Switzerland, the United States, Austria, Japan, Argentina, the Netherlands, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, and Lebanon.
