Street Art Tel Aviv: Graffiti and Public Art Photo Blog

Street Art Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv is one of the cultural capitals of the Mediterranean. There are so many art galleries here and the street art in Tel Aviv is hard to miss. While I didn’t go looking for street art, I found it in almost every part of the city. And I’m no expert on street art, but some of it is quite good. I started to fill my camera with graffiti and pubic works of art.

Rather than leaving this pictures to gather dust on a memory card, I’m going to share some of the street art I found in the post below.

This isn’t a guide to the best street art in Tel Aviv, but gives a flavour of the art that I found during my visit. I hope you enjoy.

Neve Tzedek

Not necessarily street art, but I absolutely loved the quirky design on this vehicle.

Any surface is a canvas for graffiti and street art. Even the wheelie bins!

Eurovision

A Karlos International blog wouldn’t be complete without a splash of Eurovision, and this is no exception. Netta themed street art / public art in Tel Aviv is testament to how seriously Israel takes the contest.

When did you last see street art in London celebrating the Brotherhood of Man? I rest my case. Not sure what I’m talking about?

Here is the Eurovision art I found.

Recycled toys have been used to create this effigy of Netta, the 2018 Eurovision winner. If you look closely you will see her eyebrows are toy spiders and her hair is stuffed toys.

This Netta Mural is in Jaffa and is made from recycled bottle tops.
