A Project of Peace, painted across 50 buildings // by el Seed (2016) ✨
This French Tunisian artist travels around the world and shares powerful messages through his street art calligraphy. In this project, he depicted symbols of hope and peace on a mural across 50 buildings in Manshiyat Naser, an area in Cairo, Egypt, that was known as the Garbage City. el Seed says he walked into this project with many misconceptions, however he was proved wrong by the people's pride in what they were doing, which was helping their city with a major issue- being engulfed by garbage. Knowing the importance of perception, el Seed decided that it would be special if this mural can only properly be seen from one vintage point by a nearby mountain. The message he found relevant to share was a quote from a Coptic bishop from the 3rd century which says, "Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eyes first." -

Back home in Cairo and since it is 3am here is a #tbt to one of the lesser visited, yet amazing things to do in this fantastic city. Perspective mural painted across a number of buildings in one of the Coptic areas of the city. Arabic calligraphy of a 3rd century Coptic archbishop that says "for one to see, first wipe your eyes" (very roughly!!) #elseed #mural #art #architecture #publicart #cairo #cairoegypt #cairoliving #instatravel #instatraveller #travel #traveller #travellife #globalphoto #global #lifewelltraveled #coptic #egyptissafe #visitegypt #globetrotter #world_travel #travel_photo #ig_travel #travelgram #traveladdict #tbt #oneworldphotograph #oneworld #coexist #hello_worldpics

Photograph by @johnnyhansonpics “It’s important that each message speaks to the local community but also has a universal significance,” says eL Seed, who spoke to AramcoWorld last month for “eL Seed’s New Scripts” http://bit.ly/elseedinterview.
Last year on a facade of the Graduate College of Social Work at the University of Houston, Texas, (pictured) his art translated into Arabic and rendered into calligraffiti a quote from city founder Sam Houston: “Knowledge is the food of genius, and my son, let no opportunity escape you to treasure up knowledge.”
