In a sweeping effort to clean up Tahrir and the surrounding area, scores of little men with paint brushes covered the iconic revolutionary graffiti with a thick layer of creamy paint. Effectively creating a huge blank canvas for the spray-painting artists. It took only a few hours before the first new artwork appeared and all over town you can hear the clinking of spray cans being shaken. While we will miss what was there, we cannot wait to see what this new round of artistic expression will bring.
The walls will not be silent
