Khaled Hourani

Hourani’s work has had a vital influence in the growth of contemporary art in Palestine and his artistic practice often responds to the surrealism and comic absurdity of current events.

As founder and director of the International Academy of Art Palestine, he initiated the Picasso in Palestine project in 2011, which brought an original masterpiece to the West Bank for the first time in history. He won the Leonore Annenberg Prize for Art and Social Change in 2013.
