A Totally Eye-Catching Art Work Has Just Appeared In Al Ula

Al Ula is home to a UNESCO World Heritage site which was built more than 2,000 years ago by the Nabateans, a population of Arabs.

The untouched land, a walled city named Madain Saleh, is packed with mud-brick and stone house, it’s currently hosting events for the Winter at Tantora, and a Dubai-based artist was commissioned to create a piece for the land.

A tough feat, considering the history of the area. However elSeed, a French-Tunisian street artist who is based in Dubai took the history of the site and combined it with his recognisable street style to create something truly special.

“When I visited AlUla a few months ago for the first time, I realized that there is no way I could compete with Nature.”

Steering clear from his usual eye-popping colour choices, elSeed commented he needed to create something that wouldn’t clash but blend in, ‘disappear, almost impossible to grasp, like a mirage.’

The piece acts as a metaphor for a heartbreaking love story etched deep in history, read the story of  Jameel and Buthayna in the caption below

From a distance, Mirage is nearly missable. But it makes noise for its understated excellence in its storied home
