Abstract

Born to Tunisian parents, eL Seed spent his formative years in the suburbs of Paris juggling different cultures, languages, and identities. He channeled these experiences into a form of artistic expression that blends Arabic calligraphy with graffiti - creating a modern art style called Calligraffiti.

eL Seed's current project took one year of planning, and showcases the Coptic community of Zaraeeb, in the neighborhood of Mokkatam Mountain in Cairo.
