Assilah is a fortified town planted on the northwest coast of Morocco.

Since 1978 , as part of an intercultural festival , it offers its walls to artists worldwide. The pristine city walls get covered with colorful splash as diverse as poetic works. The most popular frescoes survive for a few months or years.

The remaining murals will be covered in the fall with a new coat of immaculate white paint .

Modest and short-lived form of art, it disappears to offer new blank media artists to come.

Some beautiful pictures of the 2012 edition are shown here.
