French-Tunisian street artist eL Seed's distinctive art work has been tapped by the Parisian Mayor to help placate Parisians as they say good-bye to the world famous 'Love Locks' on Pont des Arts in Paris. The locks that adorn the bridge, over the Seine River, have been placed and signed by romantic tourists and Parians alike, over the course of many years. However, recent concerns over the overbearing weight of the heavy locks, and its effect on the structural integrity of the bridge have forced officials to remove them and replace the railing of the bridge with beautiful street art. 

The mayor of Paris has teamed up with Tunisian, Mehdi Ben Cheikh, director of art gallery Itinerrance, to help curate street-art from fellow Tunisian, eL Seed and three other artists, Jace, Brusk and Pantonio, to create graphic solutions for the bridge. 

eL Seed is known globally for his style mixing Arabic signs with typical urban graffiti that infuses traditional typographical art with modern themes. His work is already on display in Tunisia, Brazil, America, the UAE and now, Paris. Take a look at his unique bridge design below...
