  • 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
