Tashkeel's resident artist Ruben Sanchez and established Tunisian artist El Seed will be decorating a blank wall in Dubai's Safa Park next weekend as part of the nationwide celebrations for winning the Expo2020 bid.

Sanchez, a Spanish graffiti artist has spent the last year in Dubai working out of Tashkeel and has already made his mark on the town when he painted a building in Jumeirah a few months ago. El Seed, is French-Tunisian street artist whose works incorporate traditional Arabic calligraphy in a style he calls calligraffiti.

Next Friday, they will be leading an interactive art workshop in the park as well as displaying their talents on the wall.

The workshop is a collaboration between the Crossway Foundation, Brownbook and Tashkeel and is free for everyone. It will take place from 2pm-5pm on Friday December 6th in Safa Park, Dubai.
