Rather like my photo post from Bethlehem last week, I think I’ll just make this a short collection of some of my favorite photos of the street art in Jerusalem.
The street art in Jerusalem is often politically motivated. Sometimes the graffiti is vandalism: racist and derogatory messages. But not all of it. As much division, hate and separatism there is in Jerusalem, there is still hope, peace and love. For example, this first image shows a piece of street art I spotted while on a walking tour of Musrara. Underneath a street marker showing the direction of the nearest bomb shelter, an artist has painted a copy in blue, with arrows pointing in both directions toward “love.”
Enjoy the photos of Jerusalem’s street art below, and view additional photos from my most recent trip in my online photo album.
