One of the best parts of walking through Adliya is undoubtedly the street art.
And now four different spots in Bahrain will be getting a similar makeover as part of National Day celebrations.
Four artists will be painting murals in Nabih Saleh, A’ali, Budaiya and Manama over the next month.
Zuhair AlSaeed completed the first in Nabih Saleh on Saturday (December 7), while Faika AlHassan will be tackling one in Bab al-Bahrain and Jaffar AlOraibi will paint another in A’Ali Walkway on December 14.
The final mural, in Budaiya Garden, will be created by Ali Hussain Merza on December 21.
If you want to check out the artwork as it’s being created, head down to each of the areas between midday and 4pm.
Earlier this year, the Bahrain Trust Foundation launched a project to transform Bahrain’s streets into beautiful public spaces for everyone.
So far, the “Bringing Life to the Alley” campaign has added a library, interactive education games and wildlife-friendly greenery to an alleyway in East Riffa, and there are plans for more in the future.
Free. Dec 14 and 21 noon-4pm. Bab al-Bahrain, A’Ali Walkway, Budaiya Garden (no number).
