A Part of A Body

Sohail Salem’s ‘A Part of A Body’, is like the title implies, an allegory to the deep spiritual and physical connection that he, as a Palestinian, feels towards the landscape (both land and sea) of Palestine.


Born in Gaza in 1974, Sohail Salem obtained his BA in Fine Art from Al Aqsa University in 1999. He is a founder and member of Eltiqa Group for Contemporary Art and currently works as a Graphic Designer in Gaza.
