Ibrahim Nubani was born in Acre (1961); he studied art at Bezalel, the Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. He lives and works in the village of Maher in the Galilee. Nubani is perceived as a controversial artist, who difies the colonialist Israeli system. His father grew up in Haifa, and after the Nakba was forced to abandon his home for Acre and settle there. In Nubani’s creations, abstraction is not only a “condensation”, its also an attempt to distance himself from the approach of a report or of documentation in order to reach the heart of an idea or its essence, and to express soulful and spiritual energy, which is the artistic parallel to freedom and liberation. Ibrahim Nubani has held a number of solo and group exhibitions locally and internationally.
