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.

Vera Tamari was born in Jerusalem in 1945. She received her BA in fine arts in 1966 from the Beirut College for Women in Lebanon (now the Lebanese American University). Tamari completed her studies in ceramics at the Instituto Statale per la Ceramica in Florence, Italy, in 1972. In 1984, she obtained an MFA degree in Islamic Art and Architecture from Oxford University.

Tamari primarily worked with clay, including bas-reliefs, sculptural installations, and what she calls sculpted paintings. In 1975 she became the first artist to establish a ceramics studio in the West Bank when she opened one in Al-Bireh, near Ramallah. She was a founding member of the Al-Wasti Art Center in Jerusalem, as well as the New Visions Art Group. She is a member of the League of Palestinian Artists and Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center. Tamari lectured on art at Birzeit University, where she founded the Virtual Gallery. She also created the Founding Committee for the Development of Cultural Heritage. In 1989 she co-authored The Palestinian Village Home.
