eL Seed is a ‘calligraffiti’ artist, a blend of the historic art of Arabic calligraphy and  the modern art of graffiti, mixing street  culture  from  Paris  and Arabic  history to poetic effect. Born to Tunisian parents in the suburbs of Paris, eL Seed spent his formative years juggling different cultures,  languages,  and  identities.  Today   eL Seed’s  pieces  have  developed out  of  two worlds colliding, with these  two cultures clashing and blending into one another, to form a new identity, a unique mark and a distinctive style. Meet him in person for his book, Lost Walls, filled with his calligraffiti journey in Tunisia on May 28th  at our Yas Mall store at 5pm and May 29th at our MOE store at 7:30pm. Trust us, you won’t want to miss an opportunity like this! Buy your copy on virginmegastore.ae   Take a sneak peak at eL Seed’s…
