Sudanese political cartoonist shares his art on social media to mobilize the Arab Spring revolution
His work resonates with demonstrators and his cartoons have been used as weapons of political protest on t-shirts, banners and even replicated as graffiti. Mr. Albaih lives and works in Doha. We spoke to him last week when he was talking about his his work at McGill University in Montreal.
Here are some examples of Khalid Albaih's work
"The Rest Will Follow" features a fist with different Arab flags painted on each finger. The Tunisian flag was affixed to the raised middle finger, a message Mr. Albaih meant for Arab dictators.
Mubarak "insistent" cartoon featuring a silhouette of Mr. Mubarak's face with the word "Egypt" in Arabic next to it. It was marked with an accent, though, that altered the word's meaning to "insistent."
"Sudan Needs a Hug," which reflects the overwhelming feeling of sadness and failure that many northern Sudanese felt when Sudan split into two.
