Revolution Graffiti

Street Art of the New Egypt



ISBN: 9780500290941 Category:

Mia Gröndahl


The Egyptian Revolution that began on 25 January 2011 immediately gave rise to a wave of popular political and social expression in the form of graffiti and street art, phenomena that were almost unknown in the country under the old regime.

Mia Gröndahl, a noted photographer, followed and documented the constantly and rapidly changing graffiti art of the new Egypt from its beginnings. Here, more than 430 full-colour images celebrate the imagination, skill, humour and political will of the young artists and activists who claimed the walls of Cairo and other Egyptian cities as their canvas. The book is punctuated by interviews with some of the individual artists whose work broke fresh ground.
