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!

Abandoned Manhole Covers Converted into Secret Rooms

Briancoshock1

Milan-based artist Briancoshock turns abandoned manhole covers into fully decorated miniature rooms. While amusing, the installations are part of a larger commentary on the extreme living conditions in which many people are forced to live, such as the situation in Bucharest where over 600 people are living in the sewer system. More images from “Borderlife” below.

The exhibition will debut new works in an on-going series in which Huckins meticulously re-creates 19th-century American paintings, and combines them with the language of our mobile-messaging, social media-obsessed, times.

The works are not digitally generated or Photoshopped, everything is hand-painted, even the text. More images below.
