The keynotes by El Seed discuss the trials of succeeding a Western culture as a Arabic artist, touching upon sensitive topics as ethnic identity and social acceptance.
Seed was born in France but is of Tunisian descent. His work, encounters and evolution have inspired him to delve a little deeper in Arabic calligraphy, which eventually influenced his art. His creations can be seen all over the world, ranging from Canada to across Europe to South Africa. A redeeming quality is that he does not tag his own work with his name anymore, emphasizing recognition to the art piece rather than the artist.
By discussing his own experiences with close mindedness and apprehension, the keynotes by El Seed try to guide audiences on a journey of cultural exploration and learning.
