Capital Street Art
You may notice a lot of street art works in the Riyadh capital city. The Saudi Ministry of Culture has launched initiatives and programs to support “street artists”, with specific city locations chosen so they can express themselves by using spray paint, paint by brush, markers, stenciling and more, as part of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030.
Locations chosen for graffiti are usually near a traffic light or within a public place, to maximize the potential viewing of the art form.
Riyadh Art is also showing Arab Calligraphy, following the vision of the Ministry of Culture and its role in advancing the arts and culture sector in the Kingdom, and due to the historical significance of Arabic Calligraphy. A symbol of Saudi identity, and a source of inspiration for many local artists.< Back
