In the artist’s own words: “More than 6 years ago, Egypt joined much of the Arab world in what was known as the Arab Spring. I was still in high school, but I remember this month all too well. On February 12 I ventured with family to Tahrir Square, the heart of the entire revolution. The streets were packed with cheering people, waving their Egyptian flags proudly. I, too, was proud of Egypt’s persistence and continual fight for freedom. That sea of red, white and black waving back and forth is a sight that I can’t forget.”
