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.”
