About Najwan Zoubi

Najwan Zoubi was born in nazareth 1988, started painting over twenty years ago. She feels that the real artist in her appeared later when she started to grasp a deeper meaning of the complexity of the Israeli Culture; Arab Israeli and Jewish Israeli. A hope in unity among the diversity of people in Israel was what she experienced as a young Arab woman artist. Art conquers the space, maps and reshapes it. Her artwork deals with memories and flashbacks that she can recapture and gather daily in my life as a woman that lives between two complicated worlds.
