Beginning on May 15th, the city of Rabat hosted JIDAR Toiles de Ruethe largest street art festival in Morocco to date. For nine days, over ten artists from across the globe — along with several local artists — endowed the historic city with marvelous, energetic large-scale murals. Launched by the non-profit organization Le Boulevard,  JIDAR Toiles de Rue is Morocco’s premiere festival of this calibre and promises other fantastic walls to follow.  Here are some of the images that I captured:
