As he was nearing the end, the owner of the wall, who had agreed to the painting, objected because it was in Arabic. “I had forgotten the particularly violent brand of french Arabophobia normalized in mainstream culture, “said eL Seed. “For this man seeing an Arab man paint in Arabic surely scared him. “A week later, eL Seed returned in defiance and wrote “Open your heart” on a public wall nearby.
