In two weeks, four young boys from Detroit will face murder charges in the death of 23 year old French street artist Bilal Berreni, known in the urban art scene as simply 'Zoo Project'. He was visiting the city for the second time, fascinated by the social messages coming out of it and what could be 'born from chaos'. I've attached an obituary written by the Detroit Free Press earlier this year. It tells a lot not only of the murder case itself, but of Bilal's history of art as activism and involvement in North African refugee projects.
That's such a sad story :( Rest in peace!
RIP.....Zoo Projects art will live on, though!
Tragic. His work is fabulous.
rest in peace u all
