Hanthala

Hanthala


This is a timely exhibition of work by Palestinian cartoonist Naji al-Ali – gunned down in London in 1987 after lampooning Palestinian leaders.

His iconic caricature, Hanthala, is a boy who has turned his back on the Arab leaders and imperialism. Ali said, “Hanthala was born at the age of ten and will always remain ten. Only when Hanthala returns to Palestine will he grow up.”

Hanthala remains a symbol of defiance today.

Naji al-Ali exhibition
Political Cartoon Gallery, 32 Store St, London
until 12 April
