Revolution Art: Graffiti

Graffiti and mural art has been part of the revolution, drawings and paintings on the walls of Cairo streets has been expressing what people felt, what they were going through and what their dreams where all about. Even the protest signs were somehow considered as a mobile mural art or graffiti.

Here’s a very interesting facebook page by the name of Revolution Graffiti that we found.

The page has lots of great artwork of graffiti and mural paintings from the street of Cairo (about the revolution of course).

Also, Egyptian artist  Ganzeer started a really great intiative, a project about mural paintings of the revolution’s martyrs. So far, only 2 have been completed with the help of Ahmed Nadim, Ahmed Eid, Lissie Jaquette, Henriette Heisse, Mustafa El Gamal, Ahmed Hussein, Rodina G, Noha Hesham, Hannah Cooper, Islam safi and others.

The goal behind the project, according to him, is to “…on one hand, honor the martyrs, and on another hand provide passers-by with a reminder of Egypt’s struggle for freedom, democracy, and equality.

And for twitter users, a hashtag has been created, #martyrmurals to follow the project’s updates.

Here’s a Reportage about one of Ganzeer’s murals:
