Manal Deeb is a Palestinian American visual artist out of the Washington DC, USA area. Manal had many solo and group exhibits in major US and international art hub cities: Washington DC, New York, London, Paris, Dallas, Boston, San Francisco, Delhi, Cairo, Los Angeles, Rome and Chicago. Her artwork is a reflection of her original identity as a Palestinian female and the contradiction in cooping with living under occupation until the age of 18 and then cooping with the social living in the US and raising three daughters. Manal has contributed artwork for the causes of Arab/Palestinian females, women rights in general, bridging between religions, and the Palestinian cause. Many articles and interviews were conducted and published across the world related to Manal’s artwork and philosophy. Most of these publications can be found in Manal’s website: www.manaldeeb.com. Manal’s artistic engagement has recently expanded into a collaboration in producing and releasing a unique musical CD with Genre Peak. Details on the music and the CD are included in Manal’s website.
Manal studied studio arts at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and interdisciplinary studies in the Psychology of Art at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia. Her studies of Fine Arts and Psychology have provided her with the ability to work on her artwork as a self-therapy tool while presenting projects with vital messages reflecting women rights in living a prosperous life.
