Hey ! How are you these days ?
My name is Kristin and I’m a german journalist working for the Goethe-Institute in Cairo.
Please take a look at our blog:
Would you like to write an article about street-art for that blog ?
Have a nice day
I was really glad when I saw you publishing my graffiti 🙂 !!
so I guessed you might be interested to know who am I :D..!
I’m Karim Gebril..and that was my 1st graffiti experience…
here’s some other works if you’re interested
keep publishing !! :))
Ugh, just found your blog now, after leaving Cairo a few days ago. Would have loved to connect and go on a street art adventure. Filing this away for next time… (PS: Just did a post on stencils I saw there, would love any context you can offer!)
your blog is amazing! oh, and umm… i dont have spare shoes to mail, nor do i make enough to send a plane ticket… and umm… chocolates… hm, don’t have an excuse for that one! :-p
Hi there, I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award! I truly enjoy your site; keep posting! 🙂 Make sure to click the link.
deeply powerful what you are gathering on your blog! keep on!
my name is moira, I live in Istanbul and write my phd thesis on graffiti and their political significance. I would love to exchange impressions and ideas with you. please get in touch.
Dear Moira – I am nominating Suzie for a global award for the work she has done in memorializing and documenting the revolution through street art. Can you send me a paragraph on how/why this type of memorialization is significant so that I can include teh language in the nomination form? Many thanks, Nora
Amazing body of work and research! I know a lot have been said, but your writing and your choices are encouraging and inspiring. I love Egypt as my second coutry and i am proud of it’s women. Wish to see them thrive grow and remain.
Ive been reading your blog for my art project and its just great – like seriously. I see that most of your expreiences of the revoloution on the whole are ones i can relate to also, which is very touching. I was just wondering about your background as i noticed someone in tahrir reffered to you as an “agnabeya” which interested me. not sure if you put any background info on this blog…. im just not that good at navigating around the pages on here but id love to know a little about you as a preson 🙂 not trying to be nosey (well maybe just a little)
Also, id love to be able to quote you in my are project if that’s okay (as i have a feeling we may be in similar positions regarding Egypt and the revoloution) and maybe use some of the photos you took?? i went round and took my own but many of them i took too late – after the graffiti has been worn down and some of the graffiti isnt clear….
hope you can help mee 😀
thanks so much, keep posting!
p.s. a little about me just for reference:
15 year old girl, im origionally from gaza, plaestine, but have mixed parents – one palestinian and one british (very stange mix).
i like to think im involved with the revoloution, or atleast was, as ive given up most of my hope now :S ……
umm… i lived in palestine for 5 years, uk for 5 years and now egypt for 5 so ive moved around alot and i do speak 3arabi :p
probably boring you by now sooo…
you can email me on email@example.com or facebook Nadia Samir Abu Sakran
Great blog by the way!!!
I’m teaching art to 60 young budding artists who are studying Ancient Egypt. I was hoping to link in Alaa Awad’s graffiti’s art into my art lesson. I was looking for an interview with him that was in English. Do you know of any? Or anyone else with an Ancient Egyptian influence in a modern setting that is appropriate for children of 11-12 years old?
Thanks so much.
Thank you very much.

My name is Isabella and I live in Berlin. I am currently in the process of finishing my MA thesis on Street Art in Cairo since 2011 and wanted to ask you if I could use some of the fotos in my thesis to provide visual documentation for my argument when referring to specific artists and their work?
If you want to find out more about me, my thesis and so forth prior to giving your consent, which I can understand, please contact me. I will be more than happy to provide you with this info.
Love your blog and have been following it since I started researching this subject last year.
Great blog 🙂 Interested in hosting a tour of street art in Cairo and Alex? Please say yes 🙂
