Graffiti and the various elements of street art can now be seen in almost every city of the world. 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 village is inhabited by ordinary people, whose way of life is no different from thousands of other towns and villages. However, after it had been visited by more than 150 graffiti artists from 30 countries, this situation has changed radically. In other words, art has changed life there. Erriadh – is an open air museum, one of very popular tourist destination. The street art project “Djerbahood”, curated by Tunisian-French artist Mehdi Ben Cheikh was launched July and August 2014.
