Wipe It Off and I Will Paint Again
Egyptian Blogger SuzeintheCity (Soraya Morayef) has made it her personal mission to document the street art that is popping up around Egypt as a result of the Arab Spring.
Says Soraya, “the adamant, resilient, and determined” activists/artists of the opposition refuse to be silenced in the face of the governments’ increased policing on street art…on freedom, on the people’s voices, and on the revolution."
In this interview (http://muslima.imow.org/content/wipe-it-and-i-will-paint-again), Soraya describes how she has made it a personal goal to document how Egyptian women are participating in the revolution and to capture the art women are making as a result.
