Palestinian Stories in Graffiti – level 2

26-10-2018 15:00

In a city in Jordan, graffiti is on the walls of a refugee camp, and the artist narrates the story of the camp and of the lives of the people living there in his artwork.

He says that as a Palestinian artist, he ‘documents the Palestinian struggle’ and shows the ‘great crime against the Palestinian people’. He does his art in the streets so that children can remember the important beliefs from their country.

In addition to walls, the artist’s work is on display at a club, which is the heart of the camp.

Difficult words: narrate (tell a story), struggle (a continuous fight, a long conflict).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
