Riadh Part II

Feel Free - Mural in abandoned house in Riadh/Saudi Arabia During the second day of my stay in Riadh i explored the area around the Hotel. I found an abandoned house where it was possible to paint in a hidden alley because of strong shadows. In the building a Saudi lives who decided not to live the normal "Saudi-life". He uses a bicycle to buy the daily newspapers - A "real" Saudi always uses his car. He lives in that house without comfort like air condition. But he was really relaxed and peacefull. He liked the works we did there and said "thanks for the cool stuff " - I was suprised about his good spoken english. That's why my last work at this spot included his bicycle and is called "Feel free". The piece is done with oilstick and smashed sprays.
Feel Free - work in Riadh/Saudi Arabie
2nd Workshop - Saudi Arabia -Riadh At the same house I did a second workshop with locals. We painted the ground to connect the walls to a huge piece. It was a crazy action, because we smahsed nearly all the cans which we took to the place and it smelled extremly.

During my exploration i found lots of walls with sprayed mobile phone numbers. All the numbers are written by workers who look out for jobs, such as teachers, construction builders and so on. Sometimes they write detailed descriptions of their skills. In my eyes tagging at its best. looking for a job - do graffiti on a wall in Riadh

I was selected to participate in the competition. My proposal was a contemporary sgraffito work on the facade of the building. Finally i won the third prize.

After i finished my proposal i came again to Saudi-Arabia. I was invited to participate with a graffiti & street art workshop at Janadriiah Festival / Riadh. The authorities didn’t allow the workshop on the festival area, but we did a workshop in the diplomatique quarter.
