May Murad was born in Gaza in 1984. She studied Fine Arts at Al-Aqsa University in Gaza and graduated in 2006.
In addition to teaching the arts, Murad continues her own artistic work, focusing on the development of her drawing and painting techniques. Her concepts are inspired by her personal experience as an artist living in Gaza in the face of the current situation and all that it implies: socially, economically and politically. She believes that Gaza's artists not only express their feelings and document their status quo, but also seek with perseverance and courage to find a solution or at least a meaning to the unrevealed mystery they live.
May Murad (Palestine) is in residence at the Cité internationale des arts through the Welfare Association program.
