Arcadia Blank.
Dubai and the United Arab Emirates has seen a recent influx of street art and artists.  However, those working beyond preordained areas, outside the law and within a true graffati tradition, still surprisingly few.  One of the only such street artists is known Arcadia Blank.  Though rare and often illegal, the artist’s work has garnered the support of many locals by forgoing trite tagging for short thought provoking maxims.  The short text pieces touch on religion, politics, globalization, media, and a range of other matters with an intriguing mix of sarcasm and sincerity.  Further, Arcadia often utilizes temporary structures, which not only minimize private property damage but also is especially appropriate to the artwork’s style.

“An anthropologist proposed a game to children in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats.

When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself, they said, ‘UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?’ (‘UBUNTU’ in the Xhosa culture means: ‘I am because we are.)”

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL

This is my favorite thing in the world

They’re doing it right. I get the feeling children in America would have a different reaction to this

'Ubuntu' simply means being humble
