In the past few weeks, we’ve witnessed great contributions of university students who wanted to beautify streets and walls with works of art. Different groups of volunteers and students wanted to leave their mark on the Egyptian walls by creating artistic masterpieces that went viral on social media platforms and were admired by many.
It all started with a group of fine arts students who decided to paint the walls of the Giza Zoo as part of their university practical coursework. The ladies decided to give life back to the zoo through covering its blank walls with colorful paintings of animals.
Then another project received the applause when a different group of students decided to make the visit to the subway station a more enjoyable experience. As a part of an initiative called “Let’s Color It”, the students chose to turn the walls of the Opera Metro station in downtown Cairo into a galactic universe decorated with Egypt’s brightest stars. This is not the initiative’s first project, the first one was in Heliopolis when they worked on 26 wall paintings back in 2015.
Last but definitely not least, yesterday students of the faculty of applied arts decided to paint the walls of the airport’s bridge in El-nozha neighborhood.
We bow down for the great and much appreciated efforts of these students and volunteers. To many more artistic acts to come!
