Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah who has been playing for Liverpool with resounding success, has earned the pride and affection of all Egyptians. Wishing to express their great love for him, a number of young artists in Tanta, the capital city of the mid-Delta governorate of Gharbiya, painted a portrait of Salah and set it up on a bridge at the entrance of Tanta.
The young artists come from the home village of Salah, the village of Nagreig in Bassyoon, Gharbiya.
Besides Salah’s painting, they also painted Egypt’s Queen Nefertiti who lived in the 14th century BC.
Many towns and villages in Gharbiya are seeing graffiti of all sizes depicting Salah, painted by local artists on the walls of schools, railway stations, and public buildings.
