Martyr Murals
Cairo, EG

Aerosol and Acrylic Paint on Wall

A series of murals commemorating the dead of Egypt’s 2011 uprising. These murals were big collaborative efforts that drew in a great many volunteers via social media and very often right off the street as we were painting. The original intention was to do a mural for each and every one of the revolution’s victims. That, however, proved to be difficult, as the death toll continued to rise and the revolution was evidently far from over.
