I’ve used a lot of words to describe the street art that you can find in Tel Aviv—it can be anything from political statements to “cute” illustrations. Here are some photos of Tel Aviv street arts that I’ve found interesting enough to photograph, with some added commentary. I’ll be looking out for even more

Sometimes the graffiti is on abandoned buildings.

Sometimes it’s to make a social statement.

tlv_street_arts_02

And sometimes it’s simply there to add some color.

tlv_street_arts_03

Or it can be strangely boring, but poignant.

tlv_street_arts_04

Sometimes it lacks color, but has plenty of emotion.

And other times, it’s more than COLORFUL.

Sometimes it really is all about love.

tlv_street_arts_07

…so much love.

Sometimes it’s just an eggplant

tlv_street_arts_09

or kind of silly.

Sometimes it’s pretty;

other times it’s just some string.

tlv_street_arts_12

It can be small, and political

tlv_street_arts_13

…or large and oddly sad.

There are messages

of varying seriousness.

It’s quite often in Florentine

…and even more often it’s by Dede.

tlv_street_arts_17

There are murals

tlv_street_arts_18

and hidden messages.

tlv_street_arts_19

It might be hidden in corners

tlv_street_arts_20

or on the rooftops.

tlv_street_arts_21

Every inch of a building might be painted

tlv_street_arts_23

Or maybe it’s just on a concrete sidewalk

tlv_street_arts_24

There are stamps & stencils,

tlv_street_arts_25

murals of sad faces

tlv_street_arts_26

and concrete lampshades.

    These are some inspiring work. For me graffiti is a method of expressing yourself, in a strong and public manner. Its funny to think that this is illegal yet in some ways graffiti make cities look more vibrant and beautiful. Everything can be art when it has a meaning to it.

  2. Gorgeous post! It’s so refreshing to see a travel blogger focus on something other than a mountain or sunset. The artwork is beautiful, even in the form of colored string. I look forward to following your blog!

  3. Great shots, Adam! I love street art – it’s such a great window into the soul and culture of a city.

  4. LOVE this street art – what fun you must have had, taking the photos!

  5. Awesome collection, Adam!

  6. Me thinks you should write a Dr. Seuss book too!!

      DO IT! Dr. Seuss book, and I will read it to my preschoolers so that they understand just how cool street art is! If you’re ever in Seville or Valencia, it’s definitely worth checking out!
