Graffiti is often perceived to be a form of vandalism, not art. But when it is carefully thought out and carries an important message like these Egyptian political street art pieces, they become universally accepted as art and often transcend into something more important – symbols of freedom, liberty and discontent. In a time of media manipulation and internet censoring, street art is one of the few places where you can express yourself and to tell your story. It would be a shame if these pieces were washed away and forgotten.
