We all know I’m taking quirky and weird photography. When my mum watch pictures from my travels she always ask why would I take photos of all that? Window shutters, Vespa’s and bus stops. I just do, I like those and simply cant resist. I have the same with street art.
I love street art. All possible kinds from graffiti’s, sticker art, street installations, yarn bombing, street poster art, stencil graffiti. My biggest favourites are guerrilla art and ‘lock on ‘ street sculptures. There are many cities known for street art like Berlin, Sao Paulo or Paris. But as I’m in Tel Aviv I wanted to show you some I managed to spot here.
I noticed big grow of those mural beauties for past five years when I’m visiting. Although I could notice some influence of famous street artists from around the world I can see that Tel Aviv is establishing its own, characteristic style.
There are certain areas of the city where you can spot them on every single building. Bialik and general area of King George, Allenby, Sheinkin Streets. You can always spot some good ones near by Helena Rubinstein Pavilion of Contemporary Art and all streets off from Rothschild Blvd. Neve Tzedek if full of them. Jaffa Port, Tel Aviv Port, Florentine will require taking a spare batter for your camera. If you are fun of street art you will have fun in Tel Aviv. Just keep your eyes open and camera ready.
If you are thinking about visiting Israel, you should have a look at my Tel Aviv Guide. And if you don’t, reconsider, it is an amazing country!
