THIS WEEKEND IN: BEIRUT
Fancy an art fix this weekend? French-Tunisian “calligraffiti” artist el Seed has pioneered a new art form, blending historic Arabic calligraphy with graffiti to bring two distinct worlds together. With his social advocacy artwork scrawled on city walls around the world, el Seed has collaborated with everyone, from tunnel painting for the Qatar Museum Authority to creating a unique scarf design for Louis Vuitton. His first book, “Lost Walls,” documents his calligraffiti journey across Tunisia. Available to order on Amazon from June 1.
