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.
