Mohammed Ali from Aerosol Arabic, a UK based graffiti artist was commissioned by Tashkeel to create a large scale mural in collaboration with artists living and working in the UAE. I am so glad Tashkeel is making use of the lovely and large garden space it has - it will be even more fun to spend time there.
This project has been in progress since 13th March and the unveiling of the completed wall to the public will happen on 22nd March at 7pm, where the artist will also give a talk about the project.
The art on the wall has been inspired by the language and people of the region and depicts the past, present and hints towards the future.
I hope this is the start of many murals around this city. We need to see art outdoors and not just confined to gallery walls.
