The works of Abdul Hay Mussalam provide a unique insight into the recent cultural history of Palestine. Mussalam, a self-taught artist, creates relief paintings that are based on traditional Palestinian village life before Al Nakba (The Expulsion) and on his military experience as a professional solider. He served in three wars in Israel, Lebanon and North Africa before becoming an artist. He makes his own art materials out of a potent mixture of sawdust and wood glue. Mussalam lives in a refugee camp in Jordan where his life's dream is to establish a small museum to house his artwork.
