NIDAL EL-KHAIRY: The art exhibition will also present paper and poster reproductions of selected works of Nidal El-Khairy. Nidal is a Palestinian artist based in Amman, Jordan. He lived and organized in Montreal for four years before moving back to the Middle East in 2006. His art practice is based in disciplines and techniques such as drawing, stencil, illustration, comics and muralism. His work has been featured in art spaces and websites such as Electronic Intifada, in newspapers such as Al Akhbar and Ak Safeer in Lebanon, as well as on a Noam Chomsky book cover. He has participated in group shows such as Artists Against the Israeli Occupation, in both Montreal and Tokyo, as well at Caracas, Toronto, Beirut and Amman.
