Awesome Djerbahood: 1 island, 1 village, 150 artists, 30 nationalities (VIDEO + PHOTOS)

In the little town of Erriadh on the island of Djerba, just outside Tunisia’s east coast, 150 street artists from around 30 different countries have decided to turn the small town into an “open-sky museum”.

The project, Djerbahood, is curated by Galerie Itinerrance and its director Mehdi Ben Cheikh, a Tunisian-French artist who initiated the project by inviting a number of different artists such as Swoon (Caledonia Curry), La Pandilla (Alexis Diaz), el Seed, Bom.K, ROA and Herbert Baglione.
