graffiti in the town square

by ryan • October 26

The very hidden art of graffiti was on public view in Camden, Maine’s town square. eL Seed, a Tunisian French-born Arabic graffiti painter, worked in the public eye over the course of 3 days, peeling back some of the mystery behind his mesmerizing work.

eL Seed stopped signing and translating his works a few years back, longing for people to focus on the forms and not get lost in discerning intent.  It’s easier to focus on the forms when you see him create the layers in isolation.   They are instinctive and alluring.

The finished product demands a perpetual motion vision.  It’s involving and uniquely human, which is the only meaning you really need.

Thanks to Pop! Tech for the opportunity to experience the work unfolding.
