Ashekman: Eye-catching art by the most talked-about twins in town

Think post-civil war. Artistic expression runs rampant, themes flooding Omar and Mohammad Kabbani’s minds, 80’s kids at heart. In 2000, they form the group Ashekman, today one of the most well-known Lebanese graffiti signatures.

Politicians are, of course, a main target of theirs, but instead of singling them out, they chose to use the Japanese anime character Grendizer as a suitable presidential figure.

They set out to decorate the streets with their art, but their ventures do not end there: the Kabbani brothers are also in the rap scene, anchoring their spot in the hip-hop world.

Still very much relevant, Ashekman continues to express its beliefs by making the walls of the city speak. Painting the town red, in a manner of speaking.

It doesn’t hurt that the group just started a clothing line and opened a creative studio in Dubai!
