Hani Zurob is an influential contemporary Palestinian artist currently working in Paris. He is known for his vivid paintings, which are often informed by the personal events that have shaped his life. His artworks present these events through a personal perspective and a conceptual context that reflects the broader circumstances of his upbringing. The works transcend borders and geography at the same time—a mission of art that remains close to the painter’s heart. The majority of his artworks are created using tar (zeft in Arabic), acrylic, and mixed media.
Zurob was born in Gaza’s Rafah camp in 1976, and he later moved to Nablus where he received a BFA in 1994. With the aim of pursuing an artistic career, Zurob moved to Ramallah from 2001–6, at which point he received a grant that allowed him to reside in Paris at the Cité internationale des arts. In 2002, he was selected for the A.M. Qattan Foundation’s Young Artist of the Year Award.
Zurob has had solo exhibitions in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Paris, London, Marrakech, Rabat, Morocco, Doha, Kuwait City, Amman, Jordan, and Atlanta, Georgia. He has also participated in several international exhibitions. Zurob has gained notable recognition, internationally and at home, and has been selected for international awards and residencies, including Bourse et Prix Renoir in 2009. In 2013, he was named one of ten “international artists to watch” by Huffington Post.
His work can be found in private and public collections internationally, including in the Arab American National Museum (Dearborn, MI, US); the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center (Brooklyn, NY, US); Institut du monde arabe (Paris); the Association Renoir (Essoyes, France); Cité internationale des arts (Paris); Mairie de Paris, Hôtél de Ville (Paris); the Barjeel Art Foundation (Sharjah, UAE); the Contemporary Art Platform, (Shuwaikh Industrial, Kuwait); Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture (Beirut, Lebanon); the Ramzi and Saeda Dalloul Art Foundation (Beirut); A.M. Qattan Foundation (London, UK, and Ramallah); Birzeit University Museum (Palestine); and the George Al Ama Collection (Palestine).
A monograph tracing the development of his work, Between Exits: Paintings by Hani Zurob, by Kamal Boullata, with an introduction by Jean Fisher, was published by Black Dog Publishing (London, 2012).
