“Habitat de la Sablière” is a low-income housing project that is set for demolition by 2014 to be replaced with seven new buildings. Mehdi Ben Cheikh, the owner of a Parisian art gallery came up with the idea of turning the residential tower into a temporary Street Art exhibition. 100 visual artists were invited to showcase their artworks on the facade and indoors of the building. Very proud to know that seven of the participated artists are from the Middle East region:
From Saudia Arabia: Aous / Azooz / Maryam / Maz
Tunisia: eL Seed / Shoof
Iran: Alone (or A1one)

The exhibition entry is free for public, and it will be open untill the 31st of October.
