Tel Aviv Street Art – #Israel Diaries

We all know I’m taking very quirky and weird photographies. When my mum watch pictures from my travels she always ask why would I take photos of all that? Window shutters, Vespa’s, bikes and bus stops. I just do! I like those and simply can’t resist. I have the same with street art. But I think that those days we are all charmed by it! Tel Aviv Street Art is one of the best around the world.

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 of Tel Aviv Street Art I have managed to spot.

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 Street Art 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.

Tel Aviv Street Art Rocks!

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.

  1. The street art is breathtaking, Marysia! Tel Aviv has so much to offer!

  2. Ernes of Tel Aviv

    The Yafo side of Tel Aviv has its great share of beautiful graffiti art, created for whatever it might be. I find most of them amusing, while a few are meant to stir emotions, I believe. Those buildings surrounding the flea market are decorated with colorful graffitis – making more sense to their otherwise decrepit appearance. I miss TLV big time!

    • Yes Jaffa has a lot of street art as well, each corner of this city actually :) I always miss Tel Aviv!

  4. A great collection! The black and white figure in the 3rd photo down looks like Phlegm, but I’m not sure. Do you know him? My favorite street artist of all time! Happy New Year!

    • To be honest I doubt it is Phlegm, as you can see in another picture in the end of the post this ‘man’ is quiet common in Tel Aviv and Phlegm doest a bit different figures, much more kind of cosmic, from the future, fishlike, but I’m not an expert so cant say 100% :)

      • I’m sure you’re right there, the intricate black and white drawing just reminded me of him a lot. Always on the look out for Phlegm!

    I love how big the variety is. Some are really pretty and meaningful while others are just plain weird, and you’ll find everything in between as well. So I would say there is street art for everyone in Tel Aviv, really!
