Eight international leading contemprary artists have joined this initiative founded by the ABURY Foundation where Moroccan Berberbags become canvases for a new works of art.

The Dotmaster started painting on the streets of Brighton in the early '90s. He takes a sideways look at populist media with a typically English sense of humour. His street art and studio work is impeccably detailed – halftone, stark black and white contrast with photoreal stencils that create illusions and dialogues that catch the eye. In 2008 he was invited to take part in the iconic Waterloo 'Cans Festival' organised by Banksy. He also featured in the Oscarnominated 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' in 2010. Dotmaster paints annually at Glastonbury and has recently worked on the set of 'Tomorrow' a Martin Scorsese movie shot in London in 2014.
