About the exhibition

Mohammad Saba’aneh has gained worldwide renown for his black and white sketches. His stark geometric figures and landscapes are rich with Palestinian visual traditions and symbols, while his haunting figures depict a vivid perspective of the occupation.

We bring together some of Sabaaneh’s most striking works, including cartoons that portray the experience of Palestinian prisoners, drawn while Sabaaneh himself was detained in an Israeli prison. The drawings do not flinch from revealing the reality that confronts Palestinians.

About the artist

Mohammad Saba’aneh is a Palestinian painter and caricaturist. He has a daily cartoon in the Palestinian newspaper al-Hayat al-Jadida and his work is published in publications across the Arab world. Saba’aneh is the Middle East representative for Cartoonist Rights Network International and the Palestinian ambassador for United Sketches, an international association for freedom of expression and cartoonists in exile. His work has been exhibited in solo and group shows around the world. Sabaaneh is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2017 Marseille International Cartoon Festival Prix d’Or. He lives in Ramallah, Palestine.
