Children of This Land

Analysis / Interpretation / Press / Source

Saher Nassar was born in Palestine in 1986. After graduating from the University of Hertfordshire, England, he started a career in illustration and graphic design, working for various renowned media and design institutions in the UAE. It didn’t take long before he changed course and embarked on his practice as an independent artist. His artistic approach to subject matters is fundamentally influenced by contemporary political and social conflicts, where he uses various visual mediums and disciplines to showcase his work.

Nassar has participated in several solo and group exhibitions and was commissioned by various art institutes in UAE. His most recent show at Art Dubai, titled "Residue," was a comic portrayal of tyranny and the abuse of power represented by soldiers, a work that reflected an act of childishness amidst exploitation, where the residual innocence of childhood is manifested as a juxtaposition of violence.
