Gaddafi and Graffiti

leave a comment »

Graffiti is not Gaddafi’s brother. But currently, Gaddafi is close linked to graffiti. Rory Mullohand on The Observer has a good writing about how Libyan artists drive Gaddafi to the wall. It means, they drive Gaddafi to the wall.

In Tripoli, official portraits of Muammar Gaddafi are everywhere: on giant murals and billboards, in hotel lobbies, offices, shops, homes, and schools. The "Brotherly Leader and Guide of the Revolution" usually appears as a sort of deity or in military uniform with rays of light shining behind him. Throughout Gaddafi’s reign, his obsessive control of how and where his image appears has been straight out of the dictator’s textbook.
