Ganzeer – First impressions of his artwork at Mechelen

Street Art is an artistic way to articulate restistance against political power. Especially in the Arab world.

The ´Arab Spring` in Egypt was attended by the artist Ganzeer. In Kairo, Mohamed Fahmy aka. Ganzeer illustrated walls, houses and fences with critical stories about politicians, with drawings, which should remember the dead of the revolutions and with szenes of war. Now, he is always working on keeping in mind the aims of the revolution, which raises in Egypt since 2011.
