Dihzahyners: Colourful Street Art in Beirut


A collective of Lebanese artists and designers called Dihzahyners are leading initiatives to brighten up the streets of Beirut through colour. Its current urban intervention, titled Paint Up, gathers artists to paint colourful steps around the city.

A dozen collaborators recently completed one 73-step project in the Mar Mikhael district of Beirut in seven hours, resulting in a burst of polychromatic colour enlivening the concrete landscape. Staircases have also been transformed into piano keys and vibrant, patterned geometric shapes.

The initiative continues until November 3 2012.
