150 Street Artists Transformed A Tunisian Island Into A Massive Outdoor Museum

The Paris-based institution Galerie Itinerrance invited artists like C215, eL Seed, Swoon, and ROA to paint the walls, doors and ruins of Djerba, turning the sparse architecture into open air canvases.
Djerba is the largest island in North Africa, home to Roman and Punic ruins and one of the oldest synagogues in the world -- El Ghriba. With idyllic beaches and a mild climate, Djerba has long been a tourist resort destination, though the tragic Ghriba synagogue bombing in 2002 slowed travel to the island for some time. George Lucas' 1977 "Star Wars Episode IV" filmed briefly in the town of Ajim, cementing Djerba's spot in pop culture history.
