VIDEO: Graffiti returns to Mohamed Mahmoud

Revolutionary artists cover the walls of Mohamed Mahmoud Street by Tahrir in graffiti, just days after the famous street art was wiped off by authorities

Mohamed Mahmoud Street, the scene of 5 days of deadly clashes in November 2011, is now seen as one of the focal points of the revolution. Graffiti on it's walls has been wiped off before but each time it returns with new ideas - and the targets of the art are as fluid as Egypt's political situation.

The new artworks still focus on the martyrs of Egypt's uprising, but recently elected president Mohamed Morsi is now targeted on a number of pieces. Previously, much of the graffiti was against remnants of the old regime and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, who officially stepped away from power on the first of July.
