Morocco's capital city has been touched and RE-touched by some of the biggest names in the art industry. The boulevards and residential areas are now full of masterpieces dedicated to Rabat as both an honor to the city and a call-out to Moroccan artists.
A new concept is now a trending topic in the kingdom of Morocco as it's capital city - Rabat - welcomed dozens of artists with different skills and ways to execute their vision. The city's walls has been turned from "basic" to "monumental decorations".
The Capital is now THE destination of passionate tourists who can't help themselves from heading up to a new dimension with the contemporary style of the city and the modern flair brought by the mural paintings and graffiti.
The work is shared by Moroccan and international mural painters as some of the exhibited paintings as pure honor to Moroccan personalities including one of the most appreciated works which is a tribute to the Moroccan deceased-actor "Mohamed El Bestaoui" that you can find next to Rabat's coach station in "Qamra".
One of the major names who has headed to Rabat for this ambitious project was the 'Zepha' calligrapher : Vincent Abade Hafez, more known as a street painter whose work has been featured in numerous cities around the world.
Our team has interviewed so many people in Rabat's streets asking them what they think about The JIDAR Festival, and the answers were different as some of them said that it was an incredible way to mask the dirt of the walls, but others (including 3 abroad tourists) said that it was a self-expression for wall painters to exhibit their feelings and thoughts about Rabat's spiritual soul. They added that this project is a one-of-a-kind concept that will bring Moroccan and international artists together, and invite passionate youngsters to this artistic movement.
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who made sure that this festival will be a starting line for a rebirth of the Moroccan artistic culture, and intrigue Moroccans to look up for art and re-give it the consideration it worths.
