Hani Zurob

Born 1976

Hani Zurob; born 1976 in Rafah Camp in the Gaza Strip, is a Palestinian artist and painter based in Paris, France. His work addresses concepts of exile, waiting, movement and displacement, and aims to present the collective Palestinian experience through reflections on the personal.
His work has been exhibited at L’Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, Bahrain National Museum, National Museum of Damascus in Syria, the Henry Moore Institute in the UK, the Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, TX in the U.S and the 2014 Dakar Biennial. He was listed as one of The Huffington Post’s “10 International Artists to Watch in 2013.” In 2009 he was awarded the La bourse Renoir that included an eight-month residency in Essoyes.
In 2012 Between Exits: Paintings by Hani Zurob authored by Kamal Boullata and published by Black Dog Publishing was released. It examines Zurob’s work from 2002 to 2012 and sheds light on the personal and historical events that contextualize it.
His life story has inspired the creation of two films directed by Jessica Habie, Mars At Sunrise and Meet Me Out of the Siege which won the Best Short Documentary Prize at the Cannes Short Film Corner in 2007.
