Exploring the Egyptian revolution through the eyes of the graffiti writers reveals a different face of Egypt throughout this phase. The writers and their art transformed Egypt’s walls into a visual testimony of bravery and resistance. Freedom advocates have voiced fears of an apparent crackdown on freedom of expression under President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.
The graffiti were repeatedly cleaned by the state therefore the preservation of those were only possible through photography. The streets were used as a canvas to reflect the movement which were very powerful and left strong impression on people. A book called "Walls of Freedom" by street artist Don Stone and design scholar Basma Hamdy, provides a comprehensive collection of these art works and represents a visual journey of the revolution through its chronological image-timeline.
