Anyone stumbling onto the crossroads of Tannoukhiyeen and Kuwait Streets, known by many Ras Beirut residents as "Abu Taleb" (after a shop that used to occupy a nearby corner), will find a new mural.Abdul-Razak Shehab, on whose image the mural is based, passed away in 2014 at the age of 85 .Standing 41 meters high, the mural is the latest addition to NGO Ahla Fawda's Art of Change project, whose stated goal is to empower communities through urban art. Other members of the Shehab family, who for generations lived in a building facing the site, will, Noureddine said, be moved into the structure bearing Abdul-Razak's mural.
