Bashar Alhroub is a Palestinian artist based in Ramallah.

Bashar's work has developed from painting, photography, video, installation and mixed media, and has directly dealt with the polemics of a place, and its influence on our creativity. We all want to feel that we belong to a social and cultural community, constantly longing for a feeling of attachment, rooted in a particular place with a sense of significant ownership of that place.

Bashar studies the place’s materialistic, psychological, aesthetic and meditational effects. His work is thus deeply influenced by these socio-political sentiments. Questions such as who we are are often intimately related to questions of where we are, so inextricably bound to defining our location in relation to self and other.

More recently Bashar Alhroub's work began to engage with the search into the self. To achieve that he uses the bosy as the main signifier. Bashar aspires to touch the inner state of the viewer by creating a state of chaos to get his or her psychological and emotional attention. Through this inner confusion, the physical experience forces the viewer to reconsider the self and its relationship with its surroundings, dominated by division and exile, where “progress” seems to mean bloody destruction and enslavement of the human soul.

His work deals with personal vulnerability and an experience of existential anxiety strongly associated with issues such as religion, nationalism, conflict and identity construction and looks for meaning not in the individual sign but in the context of exile and fragmentation.
