UK based charity organisation, Muslim Aid is embarking on an exciting tour of Bangladesh, following their success of the tour with Jermaine Jackson of the region.

Muslim Aid will be supporting the acclaimed UK-based artist, Mohammed a.k.a Aerosol Arabic, in taking his groundbreaking style of urban graffiti art, with Islamic script, to the streets of Bangladesh.

British urban artist, Mohammed Ali, will be touring Bangladesh and taking his unique fusion of graffiti-art to a whole new world by spray painting his spiritual -urban-art murals in three cities across the country.

He will be visiting Muslim Aid beneficiaries, and working with orphans, the needy and the poverty stricken urban youth of Bangladesh, in creating the unique “spiritual murals” across the cities, Dhaka, Sylhet and Chittagong in well known districts of each city. He will also deliver seminars speaking about his art to the people of Bangladesh.

The tour will take place between August 10th- 20th beginning in the capital city of Dhaka. Venues will be announced on the website: http://www.aerosolarabic.com/bangladeshtour
