Moroccan Art Street : Mogador’s Walls

“Mogador” known now as “Essaouira”, is a western coastal city in Morocco. The relatively new name “Essaouira” came from the Arabic word “ Sur or Suur” which means “ Rampart”, reason why I choose this particular city to start this series of “Moroccan Art Street”.  It is also very important to mention that “ Essaouira” is a UNISCO World Heritage listed city, as an example of late 18th century fortified town.

I will definitely blog about my latest trip and all the valuable information I leant, where I stayed, ate and some other tips.

Back to our unframed art, that some do consider vandalism, since most of these Graffiti’s or Guerilla’s Art are not commissioned but somewhat a free way to express beauty, love, hatered, belonging, and many other social relevant themes.

Let me share with you now some of Essaouira’s best StreetArt …

" Hayat" means life or simply the name of a beloved girl :)
