Massive Mural in Cairo Stretches Across Over 50 Buildings

el-seed10

Tunisian-French artist eL Seed’s incredible art piece in Cairo, Egypt incorporates over 50 buildings in a neighbourhood that houses the city’s garbage collectors. Entirely self-funded, the mural features Arabic calligraphy that translates to “If one wants to see the light of the sun, he must wipe his eyes.”

Due to the massive scale the whole thing is only visible from a hill at the district’s edge. The area was specifically chosen to avoid catching the attention of local officials, and the artist and his friends were able to complete the entire work without being arrested or harassed. Check out more images below!
