Staircase Art around the Middle East

Tehran, Iran

Spreading happiness usually sounds a lot easier than it actually is. But When artists took to the streets and started painting staircases around the Middle East, everyone was happy! It might seem like a simple, pointless act, but every time you come across one of these spectacular staircases, you’ll find yourself smiling from how bright they actually make you feel.

With initiatives like Paint Up, Colouring a Grey City, هنلونها# , لون بلدك and many more across the Middle East making it their mission to brighten up the stairs of their countries, we can only hope for a brighter future for the Middle East – at least visually.

 

Egypt

 

If there’s one thing that came along with the revolution, it was street art. Street art and graffiti were spread over the walls of Egypt, but recently initiatives have started putting their artistic touch to stairs too! Staircase Art has now become a thing in Egypt and we are glad!
