Egyptian street art reflects turbulent social change

Amid the chaos of the 'Spring' as protesters forced the Mubarak government in Egypt out of power, popular culture responded with its own commemorations of the events. Spray paint tells the story of the other side of the revolution.

From the article:
Quote
Almost every square centimetre of the walls that flank the street has been covered with bright, cacophonous paint. These murals are some of the best examples of the inimitable street art movement that has flourished since the protests against Mubarak began.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
