Born and raised in Cleveland by Palestinian parents, Mona Gazala takes her visual cues from a combination of the post-industrial landscape (both construction and decay) and images from antiquity. Her artwork often incorporates borrowed images and/or borrowed words, repeated and reworked to give them a meaning uniquely that of the artist.
Gazala, active as an artist in both Cleveland and Columbus, has recently founded the a non-profit organization called the Cleveland West Art League, which supports the independent arts scene by promoting exhibitions, opportunities and artistic exchange for the enrichment of our community.
