Streets Dept Podcast, Episode 5: An Interview with Tunisian-French Artist and Graffiti Writer eL Seed

December 5, 2017

Welcome to the 5th episode of the Streets Dept Podcast. Today I’m excited to be joined by the world famous Tunisian-French artist and graffiti writer, eL Seed! eL Seed’s beautiful, intricate murals and artwork blend the historic art of Arabic calligraphy with graffiti to portray messages of beauty, poetry, and peace.

eL Seed has installed work on public spaces, galleries, and institutions on every continent of the world from the streets of Paris and New York to the Favelas of Rio di Janeiro and the slums of Cape Town. And he’s just created a large new mural here in West Philadelphia this past month with Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture! eL Seed’s contemporary approach works to bring people, cultures, and generations together. His goal, to create dialogue and promote tolerance.
