Haitham Haddad, an illustrator and visual designer who lives and works in Haifa, Palestine. Haitham earned a bachelor in Fashion Design from Shenkar College of engineering and design in 2011. He has since participated in several collective and solo exhibitions including Qalandiya International Biennale and 2OG gallery.
