He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Palestine and abroad and is a member of the Palestinian Artists Association and the International Artists Association (AIAP) based in Paris, France.

A small financial prize will be handed to the award winner in a modest ceremony organized by BADIL Resource Center and the Palestinian Right of Return Coalition in cooperation with the Union of Youth Activity Centers-Gaza Strip in the Khan Younis Refugee Camp Service Club on 4 May 2005 (06:00 p.m.).
