About me

My name is Eid Suleiman Hadaleen. I am a self-taught artist from the Palestinian Bedouin village of Umm Al Khair. The village is located in the South Hebron Hills area of the West Bank. Since the age of 12, I have been building miniature-sized jeeps, bulldozers, and helicopters from plastic, iron, and other scraps that I find in my village.  While in real life, these vehicles represent the oppressive Israeli occupation, in my work, I render them back into a constructive element that can be appreciated again for their positive use.

If you would like to order one of my models, please get in touch. I can work from photos, so if you have a favorite vehicle you’d like me to make, just send me a picture!
