Aerosol Arabic

A weapon against despair

Here are a few videos of the work of Mohammed Ali, a UK-based graffiti artist who blends street-art and islamic script, exploring the role of art for ‘mankind’s sake’. His work is described as a ‘bridge of understanding’ between faith communities and he has become a regular media figure. He delivers public lectures about the power of the arts to transform society and how the arts can tackle some of the difficult issues that we face in multi-cultural societies.
