SHUBBAK | MEHDI ANNASSI
28 – 30 JUNE, 24/7
ZONE 1 – NORTH KENSINGTON
St. Mark’s Rd
For its 2019 edition, Shubbak Festival commissioned Casablanca-based street artist Mehdi Annassi to create a new public mural. During his first international residency, Mehdi explored North Kensington and made connections to its history and people. Together with FerArts, SK Youth Families, and eight local collaborators, Mehdi developed a graphic story, showing creatures settling, leaving and searching for new homes under the eyes of an ominous figure. The story captures ideas of change and renewal in neighbourhoods and communities. The mural can be seen at St. Mark's Road, Ladbroke Grove, London.
Conceived and created by: Mehdi Annassi In collaboration with: Bamboo Kidd, BenzLenz, Charlie, Flexwon, Muna Less, Rajaa, Sabrin, Thaismina, FerArts and SK Youth Families.
