New Political Posters from Ganzeer

We recently acquired five posters from the Egyptian artist Ganzeer. He was part of the political and revolutionary street and graffiti arts community that played such a key role in the Egyptian revolution. One of the most important contemporary street and graphic artists working today, with an incredible design and color aesthetic, his posters and murals have been shown in recent exhibits in Berlin, Hawaii, New York, and Philadelphia. We very much enjoyed his recent visit to Special Collections and Archives and we look forward to making the posters available to researchers and sharing them in classes this upcoming academic year.
