As the eighth anniversary of the Syrian revolution approaches, Kesh Malek Organization launches the Syria Banksy Campaign. The campaign is named after one of the most influential street artists in the world, Banksy, whose artwork is known for tackling sensitive political, ethical, cultural, and humanity related issues, and carrying inspiring messages. However, his identity remains unknown despite his international fame.
The campaign aims to use graffiti to transfer and amplify the civic voice from #Syria to the world and promote the freedom, justice, and democratic values which Syrians have been combating for since March 2011.
Graffiti is a rising art in Syria and has been clearly demonstrated since the beginning of the Syrian revolution in 2011 when children from Daraa scribbled an anti-Assad message on the walls in Southern Syria and were arrested and tortured by the Syrian Security Forces, which had a great impact on triggering the Syrian revolution.
