Hany Musallam

I was born in Gaza, Palestine in 1974, where I grew up till I finished high school in 1991, a year later I was granted a scholarship from the British Council to attend a one-year Foundation Course in Art & Design at the Wimbledon School of Art & Design in London.

In 1993 I was granted a scholarship from the Polish Ministry of Culture to study a six-year Master Degree of Art at The Strzeminski Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, Poland. I received my degree in 1999 in fashion design and photography.

While I was studying in Poland and later when I lived in Moscow and in the Middle East, I have participated in several exhibitions in Europe and the Middle East both in solo and collective shows.
