Hani Zurob born 1976 in Rafah Camp in the Gaza Strip, is a Palestinian artist and painter based in Paris, France. His work addresses concepts of exile, waiting, movement and displacement, and aims to present the collective Palestinian experience through reflections on the personal.

His work has been exhibited at L’Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, Bahrain National Museum, National Museum of Damascus in Syria, the Henry Moore Institute in the UK, the Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, TX in the U.S and the 2014 Dakar Biennial.

In 2012 Between Exits: Paintings by Hani Zurob authored by Kamal Boullata and published by Black Dog Publishing was released. It examines Zurob’s work from 2002 to 2012 and sheds light on the personal and historical events that contextualize it.
