Graffiti has a particular resonance in the Arab and wide Muslim world that it lacks in the West.Launched earlier this year during Art Dubai, "Lost Walls" depicts eL Seed's journey through parts of Tunisia that remain unknown to foreigners. The artist penned the book in collaboration with other writers, each of whom was asked for their opinions about street art and eL Seed's version of graffiti in particular. Over the book's 150-odd pages, eL Seed takes his reader through Guelala, Douz, Kerkennah, Tataouine and El Kef and a number of other towns.EL Seed uses all manner of Tunisian structures for his canvas, from synagogues to houses, from desert walls to old bunkers.Eventually eL Seed approached his family's hometown of Temoula, where he painted "The history and the origin" and "Temoula, land of my Ancestors".EL Seed's "Lost Walls" is published in English by From Here to Fame, and is available on Amazon.com.
