Axel Void "Life" New Street Piece - Djerba, Tunisia


Our friend Axel Void is also in Tunisia where he was invited by the Galerie Itinerrance to paint for the Djerbahood Project.  This mural was done in the island of Djerba in the Mediterranean sea, in a little village called Erriadh.
While painting murals there, I had the chance to meet many kids from the island. Beyond conversations and jokes, we played football together. They took me to a proper rental pitch that was two kilometers away from the village. The image in the mural is a shot I took while we walked back to the village  at night, were we talked about the game, religion and cultural differences. This piece is part of the Mediocre series, which talks of daily life.  -- Axel Void
