Jawad Al Malhi works with different media such as painting, installation and video. His very sensitive exploration of self and identity shows his talent as a keen observer of the human condition. He had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Palestine, Jordan, Japan, Europe and the US. He co-founded the Open Studio Palestine project that runs art workshops for children.
