CNN has made a coverage on the work eL Seed, a 31 year old french-tunisian artist. Though his typography based murals he has within many things decorated a 47 meter high minaret in Gabes, his birthplace. Conscious of the religious extremism that haunts many arabic countries, Seed has chosen to send us a message for tolerance.
‘I hope it will inspire other people to do crazy projects and not to be scared.’
‘Before the revolution art in Tunisia was quite bourgeois, but if you put big pieces of art on walls it is for everyone.’
