Fragments of Palestine


Exhibition Dates: 15th - 23rd  March 2024

Exhibition Opening Night: 14th March 2024, 18:30-20:30



P21 Gallery is pleased to present Fragments of Palestine, an exhibition that brings together drawings and photographs from a recent visit last year to the West Bank by a group of health professionals, accompanied by artist in residence, Tim Sanders. These drawings were of normal life in Palestine, before the start of the recent, and most devastating, new Nakba. The images, including signed artists prints, are all available for purchase, with all funds going to Palestine solidarity and welfare organisations.


Fragments of Palestine is a project by British artist and cartoonist Tim Sanders and a group of health professionals who visited the occupied West Bank in May of last year. 

Sanders accompanied the health workers’ delegation as official artist in residence. 


The brief was to record in drawings and paintings this visit. Drawings is an unintrusive way of making images of people, places and situations. Where pointing a camera can often make people recoil, in his experience people tend to welcome the attention of an artist, and this interaction conveys a unique view of the events and scenes, filtered through the eye of the artist.


Tim Sanders is a British artist and cartoonist, born in the Midlands a long time ago and is now what they call a veteran! 

He studied illustration at Harrow College of Art (Now Westminster University) and after graduating worked as a political cartoonist and illustrator for a broad range of publications in the UK and abroad.

He was the in-house cartoonist for the Independent titles for nearly two decades and has contributed to the Guardian, Observer, Private Eye, Mail on Sunday (!) and many other publications. 

He has illustrated several children’s books in the UK and Spain and illustrated the graphic novel 1917 Russia’s red year (Bookmarks 2016).
