Bashar Alhroub (Palestine) produces artworks that directly deal with the polemics of a place, how to humanise it and its influence on his creativity. He asserts his identity as an essential part of and perhaps outside of those places. His work has developed from paintings, photography, video, installation and mixed media.

Bashar has exhibited his work in Palestine and internationally, including the Eli and Edythe Broad Museum, Michigan State University, USA; Center for Contemporary Art, Lazania, Gdansk, Poland; Mosaic Rooms, A. M. Qattan Foundation, London, UK; Green Art Gallery, Dubai, UAE; Birzeit Ethnographic and Art Museum, Palestine; Instants Vidéo festival, Marseille, France; and many others in UAE, Sweden, Lebanon, Morocco, France, Oman, Algeria, Syria, Japan, Jordan, Malta, France, Scotland, Norway, USA, and the UK.

Born in 1978, Bashar completed his MFA in 2010 at Winchester School of Art – University of Southampton in the UK.

Bashar was selected for a residency as part of Points of Departure.
