Frida - by Artist Malak Mattar - ملك مطر

30 x 36 cm | Paper | Signed matt print
Malak Mattar is a Palestinian 20 year old female artist from the Gaza Strip, who is currently studying on scholarship in Istanbul, Turkey.

Malak had survived three major attacks on her home. She first started painting at age 13, on paper and paint provided by her government school, during the 51-day Israeli military assault on Gaza in 2014. Forced to stay inside for her own safety, she felt the need to release all of her negative energy of fear, anxiety, and sheer terror.

Unable to leave Gaza due to restrictions of the Israeli occupation, Malak showed her paintings to the world via social media, on Instagram and Facebook. Matar’s artwork quickly began to garner interest from galleries beyond Palestine; her first international exhibition was in Bristol, UK, in 2017. Since then, her artwork has been featured in individual and group exhibitions in Jerusalem, France, Spain, Costa Rica, India, and in the USA. In early 2020 Malak completed an extensive speaking tour in the United States.
