Since I was raised in an artistic house, with a talented mother, I always looked for art in everything from books, music to raindrops and galleries, and for some years I started looking for street art. I find it so raw and honest, expressing the youth of the society they decorate for, for free.
I know graffiti is considered vandalism and a kind of art of lower value, but I don’t see it this way. I love how an old building, a bridge, a road sign could change from an old or boring sight to something spectacular by an anonymous artist.
So I’m always in the hunt, it could be a print, a calligraphy, a sign, a whole wall of expressive art… absolutely anything; I found amazing things in Amman, Beirut, Cairo, and lately Kuwait. Sadly, I lost most of my photos in a hard drive crash circa 2015!
I wanted to share in this post my appreciation for these individuals… I love what you’re doing! Color all those concrete gray streets and evade cops… you’re making history, they just don’t see it yet.
If you know any location that has some interesting art I would love to see it for myself, even if it’s around the world, I will add it to my list, so please share your favorites. x
P.S. Of course, most of the best photos of me are taken by my handsome talented husband who loves me so much he indulges all my obsessions…. I LOVE you baby! So this post ends and begins with you.
