Graffiti and the various elements of street art decorate almost every city of the world. And while somewhere street art does not exceed the level of teenage hooliganism, in other cases, street art is more similar to real masterpieces and even recognized landmark. Anyway, street art in our time is very common and of great importance, as a form of modern art.
Erriadh – one of the oldest villages in Tunisia, here Jews, Muslims and Christians have lived together for centuries. The villagers – ordinary people, whose way of life is no different from thousands of other towns and villages. However, after a team of more than 150 graffiti artists from 30 countries visited it, the village has changed radically. Undoubtedly, art has changed life there. In fact, now Erriadh is an open air museum, and one of very popular tourist destinations. The street art project “Djerbahood”, curated by Tunisian-French artist Mehdi Ben Cheikh began in July-August 2014.
