I follow Great Big Story religiously, it’s one of the best video channels online and their stories are simply amazing. I’m also a big fan of Yazan’s work and it’s pretty awesome to see him featured on Great Big Story.
He’s referred to as the “Banksy of Beirut” but I am not really sure how accurate this analogy is. In fact, Yazan even commented on the video stating that “he thinks the the comparison stems from a positive intention to compliment the artwork, but it is inappropriate as the work is not the same in terms of technique, tone, objectives and process. He prefers it when they call him the Yazan Halwani of Beirut.”
