Khaled came to Lebanon at the invitation of the Ministry of Culture and in the heart of Hamra, a central community in Beirut, and painted his latest creation in solidarity with the millions of Palestinians under siege in the Gaza Strip and refugees in many nations.
His murals, using the technique of combining calligraphy, typography and graffiti, are present in countries such as Palestine, Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Somalia, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Zimbabwe and Lebanon.
Khaled’s passion for graffiti awoke in his native Gaza Strip when he gazed the walls of the Khan Yunis camp in the southern zone, whose walls are covered with writings, drawings and slogans, he told Prensa Latina.
The street artist, 30, is aware of the role of creators to produce contents and travel anywhere in the world to convey a message of peace and resistance.
He wished to travel to Cuba and draw a large graffiti as a message from a Gaza Strip artist to the example and rebelliousness of the Revolution.
Khaled challenges through his creativity the siege the Middle East nations are living, especially Lebanon and Palestine, under the conviction that culture is a door to freedom.
