“Ganzeer will tell you he’s not a street artist, though he created some of the most iconic street art of Egypt’s recent revolution. He’ll tell you he’s not an author, though he writes prolifically about art and politics. He’ll tell you he’s not a comicbook artist, though he’s famously rendered ordinary Egyptians into superheroes. He’ll tell you he’s not a speaker, though he regularly speaks to packed rooms in Bahrain, Berlin, and Brooklyn. He’ll tell you he’s not a videographer, though his recent video “Volcano” inspired by a U2 song has received rave reviews. It seems to me that Ganzeer is most comfortable being defined by what he’s been for the past decade—an artist.”
