Props to Brooklyn Street Art for posting this video, along with photos of the work [LINK] Icy and Sot left behind during their travels.
The folks distributing the doc ART WAR are giving away streaming versions of the video until tomorrow (Sunday). Free access may only be for certain countries. As always, stencils are in the mix and always an effective tool for "street newspaper" tactics.
Art is a weapon! This motto still holds true in Cairo. After 30 years of autocracy, President Mubarak was swept away by his people. Now the street belongs to them, the young rebels and artists. Graffiti sprayers and painters make the walls speak. They recount the days of fighting in blood-smeared portraits, the time of anarchy in wild collages, the attempts of liberation from a suppressed sexuality in obscene pictures.
