Artist's statement written on Feb. 10, 2011:

"Along with people all over the world, I have been profoundly inspired by the heroic Egyptian people's struggle for democracy against the 30-year old U.S. backed dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak. As an expression of solidarity I created an all digital drawing titled "Freedom," so named because the word appears in my graphic in Arabic, Spanish, and English; my creation is dedicated to the people of Egypt, with hopes that their democratic aspirations will soon be realized.

I have published my artwork as a flyer-sized broadside meant to be distributed internationally. I invite one and all to download and print a free copy of my 8.5 x 11 inch full color artwork, which I hope will be used to advance the people's movement for true freedom and democracy. Please disseminate this artwork widely in the "not for profit" spirit in which it is offered. You can download a copy of my poster here (a .PDF file at 350 dpi resolution). I released my artwork on February 10, 2011, the very day Mubarak announced his refusal to resign." is owned and operated by Mark Vallen All artworks and text by Mark Vallen.
