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.

Due to the massive scale the whole thing is only visible from a hill at the district’s edge.

Check out more images below!
