Taqi Sabateen “Holy land” solo exhibition - Zawyeh gallery, Ramallah

12-31.Dec. 2015

Taqi Sabateen’s first solo exhibition “Holy Land” was held at Zawyeh Gallery in Ramallah in December 2015. 

Taqi sbateen is a great painter and sculptor. Sbateen graduated from the Academy in 2012, and since then has been working on developing a specialism in landscape painting and his near realist style makes him stand out as a remarkable young talent. As a deeply spiritual person, Sabateen draws inspiration from the sanctity and blessedness of the Palestinian countryside. The olive tree - the most famous of Palestinian symbols - features in nearly all of his recent paintings. Yet, Sabateen’s recent paintings also include depictions of unchecked urbanization, colonial settlements and imposing structures that threaten the very existence of this precious terrain.

As a student Sbateen visited Oslo University and participated in a group exhibition in 2011. He also participated in two group exhibitions at Zawyeh Gallery, Ramallah, between 2013 – 2014.
