Meet Yazan Abu Salameh



Bethlehem-based visual artist, Yazan Abu Salameh explores urban geographies through his work — depicting what can be seen as miniature maps that reflect the remnants of childhood memories, concrete blockades and watch towers, as well as Palestinian neighborhoods from a bird’s eye view. Using found objects and material, such as concrete, pebbles, wires and Lego blocks, his choice of medium — along with the concept — play a central role in the work he creates.


Watch as Abu Salameh discusses his practice and the advice that has influenced his approach. The initiative is produced in collaboration with Gallery One (Ramallah) and Zawyeh Gallery (Ramallah/Dubai), video filming & production are by Ramallah-based filmmaker Bilal Al Khatib.
