One of the things I did while there was photograph stencil art I discovered on the country's walls, and I'm pleased to share with you some of those pictures. Please let me know what you think, or if you have more information on the work or artists represented here.
|"Ma?" ("What?") —|
the eternal question.
|The emotion that can be conveyed|
with a little paint on a wall astounds me.
The wall, of course, is Jerusalem stone.
|"In Aza and Sderot girls want to be" –|
Is this a statement? Or are we supposed to provide the final word?
|"I want" — it's Travolta, right?|
In Tel Aviv, which seems appropriate.
|Papa Smurf. In Arabic.|
Found around the corner from the Bezalel School in Jerusalem.
|Space Invaders. Classic 80s stencil trope.|
|I call this "Kahn!"|
even though that's not the traditional transliteration
of the Hebrew word for "here."
There's a Hebrew word above "zeh" I can't make out...
it would mean, "______, it's here."
|I love fragments like this –|
wheat paste and stencil together.
|"Home Alone," right?|
"They forgot me"... in what?
Another from Tel Aviv, near Dizengoff Square.
|Prime Minister Benyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu,|
with the caption, "who believes is not afraid."
