Bringing colors to Burj el Murr – May 14, 2018

What used to serve as a hideout for snipers during the Lebanese civil war has now become a hub of all kinds of bright colors.
Built in the seventies, Burj el Murr has been abandoned and neglected ever since the Lebanese war ended, a ruin that reminds us constantly of the atrocity of the war, a war that left a lot of breakage and wounds.
But not for Lebanese street artist Jad El Khoury who had a different story, an optimistic one. Inspired by the colorful Lebanese balconies, Jad filled in the black by hanging balcony shades of all colors and thus reflected hope and beauty in a place that only knew war and guns.
