Shubbak Festival collaborates with the British Council to invite some of the most exciting emerging artists from the scene to make their mark in London's urban spaces.


Street Art is a fast growing movement in the Gulf.

Engaging with the public realm and frequently using humour, irony and references from popular culture, the works range from subtle interventions to large-scale murals. Styles vary from comic book-style cartoons, to realism and abstraction.

Artists include Riyadh-based Shaweesh and Talal Al Zeid and Fathima Mohiuddin.  The artists visit and respond to a number of sites across the capital, screating fleeting and temporary interventions. The process will be filmed and a short film will be premiered at The Mix – Shubbak Music Finale on 25 July.

Precise timings and locations of the artists’ actions will be posted on www.shubbak.co.uk/breaking-cover-gulf-street-art/ during the festival.
