Untitled, 100 x 80 cm, Mixed Media on Canvas, 2014.


Untitled I

Employing various symbolic characters, Nareman Faraj Allah’s work pulsates with tribal iconography. Yet most of these icons are symbols that she has devised; references to her life and upbringing. The central, prominent figure is likely a self-portrait and also a statement on the significance of the woman’s position and role in Palestinian culture and tradition.


Born in 1978, Nareman Faraj Allah holds a BA in Art Education from Al Aqsa University, Gaza (2004). She is a member of the Palestinian Artists Association, the Federation of Trade Unions in Palestine, the Paletta Group of Fine Art and the Roots Fine Art Group; all based in Gaza.
