Art attack: How graffiti was used to condemn the regime's oppression in Egypt
Saturday 16 March 2013
In Mubarak's Egypt, the art of public protest – and protest artworks – was forbidden. But in the wake of the Arab Spring, Egyptians began to treat their streets as a canvas, using graffiti to condemn the regime's oppression, express revolutionary fervour, and to celebrate their new-found, hard-won freedom.
'Revolution Graffiti: Street Art of the New Egypt' by Mia Grondahl, is published by Thames & Hudson on 2 April, £16.95
