He works in watercolour, ceramics, acrylics, mixed media and makes installations. His piece ´Siege´ was intended to portray the siege in the West Bank and in the Arab countries. He describes the work. ´Contradictory materials were manipulated in this work. The first was natural (olive tree twigs and wild thyme veins). Felt to be close to you, your soul and feelings, felt to be honest maintaining the warmth of truth. Adhering to homeland. The other was artificial (nylon). It is felt to be distant, as if it were against nature and nervous, stifles and hinders nature.´
Hazem Nemrawi was shortlisted for the Visiting Arts/Delfina Annual Fellowship in 2001 on the nomination of Rafa Al-Nasiri, Director of the Bahrain Center for Fine Arts and Heritage at the University of Bahrain.
