Street Art and Graffiti Thrive in Post-Gaddafi Libya

By - Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

When a country is in the grips of totalitarian rule and the people cower beneath an iron fist, it is almost certain that there is no graffiti and very little self expression. When Moammar Gaddafi ruled Libya political opposition and independent cultural expressions were illegal. It was unimaginable to see graffiti and street art celebrating the libyan people and mocking Gaddafi. Today, you can see this type of work all over the streets. These photographs were taken by Karim Mostafa in Benghazi, Tripoli and Misrata throughout February and March. Photo: Karim Mostafa Source: Mashallah News
