French-Tunisian artist eL Seed blends the historic art of Arabic calligraphy with graffti to send messages of beauty, poetry and peace across all continents. He left his mesmerizing imprint on buildings across the world, from Rio to Cairo. Finally he picks up his spray cans for a mural in Dubai. But, despite creating works on walls all over the world, this is the first time he has made his public mark in the city that he loves.
“Sometimes you have to go around the world to come back to where you are,” he says, “and I am happy that I waited all this time for the right wall”.
One of the outside walls of The Green Planet, a new rainforest centre at City Walk, is now decorated with a gigantic 45 meter high silver-coloured mural which spells out the words of a poem titled Positive Spirit. I was there to take some photos at the start of his fabulous art calligraphy project. To see the result of his hard, challenging and exhausting work just visit The Green Planet Rainforest Center in Dubai. It is stunning.
