I thought the group might be interested in this topic.

CAIRO (AP) — A group of artists, photographers and a publisher have joined hands to preserve Egypt's graffiti. "Wall Talk" — their newly released 680-page book — collected hundreds of photos of the wall art since the beginning of the revolt against then-President Hosni Mubarak in early 2011 until today. The result is a street history that chronicles image by image the evolution of Egypt's upheaval, which is still unsettled.

"Every art form has its rules. When I paint on wall, I commit my art to the street. The street owns it. The street and whoever in it can do what they want with it," says Sad Panda, a prominent graffiti artist who won't give his real name for fear of retribution. "To me, politics is absurd, stupid and sad. It is all about winning power."

"But I did take part in the revolution. I cannot be living in a nation that has a revolution and not participate."

I think the book is actually be another name, at least there is one on Amazon that is forthcoming: "Walls of Freedom: Street Art of the Egyptian Revolution".
