Beyond Walls is a non-profit organization based in Beirut, Lebanon that tries to connect young artists from different countries to help each learn about the others culture through large scale mural paintings.
In the wake of the Arab Spring, which originated in Tunisia, the Tunisian people have been adjusting to life with a more democratic style of government.
In the summer of 2013, Beyond Walls went to Tunisia to work with a local art school in the capital, Tunis. I was invited to work on this project both as a painter and documentarian. Two and a half weeks and 125 meters of wall later, what started as a group of strangers ended with several lasting friendships and a completed the mural meant to promote peace, kindness and unity.
