Paintings by Zahi Khamis and Besan Khamis



Exhibition Dates: 1 May - 5 June 2015







For the first time, Gallery Al-Quds presents art from two generations, that of  Palestinian painter Zahi Khamis and his son Besan.

Influenced by the modernist styles of Picasso and Matisse as well as the Mexican muralists, Zahis work is part of the long tradition of committed art.  His bright, optimistic colors combined with the tragic expressions of his subjects, express the painful, yet luminous, contradictions of all those who struggle for liberation.

Besan Khamis is a third-year undergraduate art student at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and a graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts. He is an interdisciplinary sculpture major, and is working in a variety of disciplines: music, sound, painting, installation, 3D digital fab, and video.
