eL Seed’s intricate calligraphic compositions call not only on the words and their meaning but also on their movement, which ultimately lures the viewer into a different state of mind. eL Seed works primarily with subjects that seem contradictory, his art reacts to the reality of mankind and the world we live in today. eL Seed installed his work in public spaces, galleries and institutions on every continent. In 2017, eL Seed won the UNESCO Sharjah Prize for Arab Culture. He was named a Global Thinker in 2016 by Foreign Policy for his project ‘Perception’ in Cairo. In 2013, he collaborated with Louis Vuitton on their famous ‘Foulard d’Artiste.’
