El Seed is a ‘calligraffiti’ artist who was born in the suburbs of Paris to Tunisian parents. He blends Arabic calligraphy and modern art graffiti to create absolutely beautiful works of art. His latest work is called “Perception” By El Seed ($NFS).
It covers 50 buildings and is only visible from a specific point. The piece is located in the neighborhood of Manshiyat Nasr, Cairo in the community of Zaraeeb.
The community collects the trash of the city. It has developed an efficient and highly profitable recycling system. But is seen as dirty, marginalized and segregated. Written in Arabic and using the words of a Coptic Bishop, the piece reads, “Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first.”
