Artworks are organized according to their year of creation. Furthermore, they are organized according to their purpose or the way in which they were created. Each artwork has a separate page, in which all of its details are recorded.
Beyond his extensive work in diverse media, Abdi’s iconography marks a long contribution to the Palestinian struggle for recognition and the voicing of Palestinian particular identity, history and suffering as a central theme of his creative work.
“Awareness of the torn motherland”, is an appropriate general expression for Abdi’s creation… However, this “awareness” strives for universal justice, for universal artistic language that is beyond the borders and the issues of identity and nationality: at the center of his creation, the human figure appears time and time again, sketched in a sensitive illustration that is attentive to the suffering of human beings against the waves of history..
Abed Abdi is a prolific artist, having produced a significant body of work that remains largely undocumented. During the first stage of his artistic career, he primarily worked in color and black and white. The painting “Intifada” (1986) exemplifies his formal skill while also revealing that sympathies across Israel’s artificial borders and checkpoints remain strong.
The work you have done in the age of the internet is as monumental as Abed Abdi’s work is monumental in the history of Palestinian art !
Busy life, great artworks, and creative artist
Abed Abdi is a prominent Palestinian artist who has played a significant role in the advancement of art among Palestinians living in Israel. He is most notably known as the first Palestinian artist living in Israel to erect monumental works in public spaces to commemorate Palestinian modern history that are still standing in Palestinian towns and villages.
Abed Abdi is an artist and educator who has been consistently promoting Arab culture for over 40 years, and whose contribution to the visual culture of historical Palestine is unprecedented. It is these images that shaped Arab visual memory of historical events like the Nekba, the refugee camps, destroyed villages, and the events of Land Day, hence the works’ significant influence on the collective memory of the Palestinians in the occupied territories.
