The United States is one of several countries that have been using murals on US military bases, with some of the biggest, most well-known ones in the country.
But what if you’re looking for a more personal connection?
Or a more iconic mural?
How do you tell the difference between an Egyptian and a US mural?
We asked the people who have designed the murals in the US and abroad.
Here are their answers.
The murals of Washington, DC are by a group called the Black Lives Matter mural group.
They painted murals across the city with the message: ‘We are the victims, not the perpetrators.
We are not criminals.
We will not be silent.’
Their work is seen as controversial and controversial works in general, but it is also seen as a way to show solidarity with Black Lives Matters activists who have been targeted by police in recent months.
They have also been criticised by some of their supporters, and some say the work is racist.
The mural has been painted over the Black History Month holiday on the grounds of the US Capitol in Washington, D.C. The work has been condemned by many groups including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), who said the mural ‘offends’ the American flag, which is flown at the US capitol in Washington.
In a statement, the NAACP said: ‘The Black Lives MATM mural depicts Black Americans as victims and perpetrators of violent crime.
It is disrespectful to our Nation’s history and to the African American community in general.
‘This is a flag that has been displayed on every US cap, courthouse, and city hall since 1776.’
The BLM mural, which has been shown across the nation since the early 1900s, depicts Black people as victims of violence, not perpetrators.
It portrays Blacks as a victimized group of people and ignores their history of being targeted by law enforcement officers.’
The Washington DC mural was commissioned by the US Army Corps of Engineers.
The Army said it ‘reinforces the longstanding belief that Black people are our neighbors, our partners, and our neighbors’ best hope.’
A few weeks ago, a mural in Philadelphia by the group Project Muse raised the issue of race and police violence against African Americans, saying the mural should not be used as a ‘political statement’.
The group posted a video of the mural on Facebook and said the work was meant to ‘reflect the experiences of Black Americans in a variety of ways’.
The mural was painted in December 2016, and the group said the painting was meant as a tribute to African American civil rights leader Stokely Carmichael, who died in the 1970s.
The mural includes images of African American men, women and children, including young children.
The group said it did not know the identity of the person behind the work.
A spokesperson for Project Muse said: ”The Black LIVES Matter mural in Washington DC reflects the experiences and concerns of Black Lives matters in the United States, including those of our children, that the Black lives matter movement, the Black Panther Party, Black Lives Movement, Black on Black crime, and Black Lives are not being heard and are not considered by the police department.”
The Black on black crime mural was also commissioned by local artists and artists are still working on the artwork.’
We do not have any official comment on the project.’
Mural artists are not the only ones who have protested the muras.
A mural in London, the UK, is also being criticised.
It depicts an image of a white police officer and black people in handcuffs and the words ‘Stop the killing’.
The group in London said the mural was part of a ‘whitewash’ campaign that is not ‘representative of the reality of the UK’ and was ‘disrespectful of Black lives’.’
In the UK the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has been criticised for using police officers as props in their mural campaign.
A spokeswoman for the MPS said: ‘[We] have commissioned a number of murals and have been doing so for a number and have always made clear that the work has not been approved for public display.’
Our work is intended to show a range of different perspectives on our local and global problems and we have always been clear that this work is not to be used for political purposes or to criticise the police.’
Mural campaigns like these are not reflective of the realities of the local and national issues they represent.’
While there have been a number protests around this mural, we have been able to demonstrate to the police and the public that we want to see these campaigns and the work to continue.’
The mural in Doha, Qatar, has been removed from the wall of the Qatari parliament after an online petition was started.
The group said they were not happy with the removal of the work but that they hoped the work would return in time for next
