The project launched by Zawyeh Gallery, ‘Posters for Gaza’ aims to shed light on the ethnic cleansing and horrific massacres inflicted on the Gaza Strip demanding cease fire and the recognition of Palestinian rights to live freely on their land with dignity.

Representing a long tradition in Palestinian history, political posters were produced extensively in the seventies and the eighties by the Palestinian Liberation Organization with the contribution of Palestinian, Arab, and international artists. Posters played a crucial role then in supporting the justice of the Palestinian cause and promoting it globally, guided by freedom, dignity, resilience, and the ongoing aspiration for independence, sought by Palestinians.

Hosni Radwan was born in Baghdad in 1955. He studied fine arts at the University of Baghdad, specializing in graphic design. He held several solo exhibitions in Iraq, Lebanon, Cyprus, Japan, and Palestine. Radwan took part in international biennales including in Berlin, Cairo, and Sharjah. He left Baghdad in 1979 and headed to Beirut, where he worked in graphic design and journalism while continuing to draw and paint, using his talent to express the cause of his people. Radwan’s works have special characteristics as they do not include realistic or political imitations. He seeks to illustrate the external world in all of its spaces and its various states and situations, using techniques that go beyond color and different materials, thus forming a world of his own. Details of the scenes in Baghdad have played a major role in his artistic experience, inspiring his work that has spanned over 25 years of ongoing production. He mixes acrylics with sand, wood, paper, and other objects, forming mounds on his canvas which create a special abstract world.

Radwan has exhibited widely, and his solo shows have been held in cities including Tunis (1993); Tokyo (1985); Nicosia (1983); Ramallah (2003,2002,1997); Baghdad (2001), and Kuwait (2008). Radwan lives and works in Holland.
