Mohammed Hawajri strives to represent both escapism and grim realities, as his work sheds light on his reality by way of merging satirical and beautiful subject matter.
This is a series which is influenced by Mohammed’s mother as a symbol of the beauty, strength and resilience of women. The women’s dresses are decorated with images of the fluctuating reality that Palestinians are dealing with on a daily basis. The bright and beautiful colors is the artists way of looking forth to keep the hope alive for the anticipated future.
