Greenbox dictionary of Saudi Arabian artists

Mohammed Kamel (1989) used to sign his graffiti as 'Lion heart' by drawing a lion and a heart. The courage to do unusual things, is what is name stood for, but he didn't really need a name. His friends would recognize him for the quality of his work. An artist should convey a message, is what he told Saudi Gazette on winning a prize in 2009 at an organized event of 250 graffiti enthousiasts. Colour sprays only, is how Kamel defines graffiti even though he suggests a historical line back to hieroglyphics. His winning work was a window for an elderly man coming from the past to see - or should it be understand - the changes of his time.
