Bashar Al Hroub

Bashar Alhroub is a Jerusalem-born artist known for his eclectic artistic practice, which includes collage on paper; sculpture; autobiographical photography; figurative paintings depicting haunting figures; detailed line drawings of Jerusalem and its surroundings. Palestine is central to Alhroub’s artistic exploration,
presenting a diverse body of work that deals with the psychological and pathological symptoms of living under occupation. Inviting a reflection on martyrdom; migration; religiosity; and the sociopolitical trappings of colonisation and resistance to it, Alhroub offers a refreshingly critical perspective on a highly politicised nation. His work has been widely exhibited internationally, including biennials, art fairs and museums in Paris, London, Dubai and across North America and the United Kingdom. Having achieved widespread interest and commercial success, his work has been acquired by a
number of international collections and museums including the Imperial War Museum, London; Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah; Bengal National Gallery, Bangladesh; Birzeit University Museum collection, Palestine; Omi Art Center, New York; Michael Abbate collection, New York; Bank of Palestine collection, Palestine, as well as private collections.
