There’s a small amount of interesting graffiti in Tunis; street art I wasn’t expecting after failing to see Tunisia get a mention in the excellent Arabic Graffiti book which landed under our Christmas tree last year.
Granted, I haven’t come across too much artistic graf (although there are plenty of slogans, politics around the place), but the city just this last weekend got a boost with a Franco-Tunisian project lightening up some walls downtown, as covered by Kapitalis.
Nothing to really write home about; which is why the below stencils by the tram lines back to the Bardo area (line number 4) stand out to me. I like the use of the double wall with the Arabic script scrawled inside the hole that the ants are coming out of – alas it is too stylized for my beginner eyes to decrypt. All these years of reading tags, and back to square one!
