    I work for an arts nonprofit in Chelsea, and we are having a festival of art & discussion about the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region this Spring. We'll be presenting dance & theater artists from the region, along with discussions and public forums on the socio-political movements in the region through the lens of the artist.

    So.... looking for a graffiti artist to represent with a mural in our lobby that will run at least the duration of the festival, and probably longer. Got any recommendations?

    Who's getting up in NYC that's from the Middle East or North Africa? They wouldn't need to be born there, just have roots - and even better - an opinion.

    This is a paid opportunity, BTW - ain't trying to get a freebie.

    Here's a link to the wall... check it out. And FYI, we do plan to have more graffiti artists represent on this wall. The first opportunity is focused on the MENA region festival.

    Google streetview of the wall:

    Thanks for pointing me to anything you can... instagram, fb, email, whatever.
