With the brilliant turquoise of the Red Sea in the background, this low wall sports a variety of graffiti – which I think detracts from the natural beauty of this location along the Corniche in Jeddah. There is graffiti everywhere in this city, on buildings, walls, and signs. Due to a lack of wholesome activities for youth in this country, many resort to spraypainting the city with graffiti. More than half of Saudi Arabia’s 22 million citizens are under 21. I read this really interesting article about graffiti artists in this country that defends the right of the young artists to do their thing since there are no other suitable outlets for the youth in this country.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
