Abed Abdi (b. 1942, Haifa) is a Palestinian-Israeli artist educated as a graphic designer in Dresden in the 1960s. Upon returning to Haifa, Abdi was employed as the graphic designer for Al-Itihad publication up to 1982. Abdi’s iconography marks a long contribution to the Palestinian struggle for recognition, the voicing of Palestinian identity, history and suffering, as a central theme of his creative work.

Paintings and Two-Dimensional Works

The current exhibition views Abdi’s creative work from a personal point of view, inquiring into his sensitivity to material qualities, the diverse usage of fabrics, building materials, personal and historical accessories which are present throughout his work along his artistic career.

In the current exhibition we have chosen to concentrate on three important bodies of work: works that portray fabrics, folds and tent wings; personal and political portraits; and drawers that carry personal as well as cultural secrets.
