Graffiti and Street Art Tour in Down Town Jerusalem


What is special about graffiti and street art in Jerusalem?

Perhaps nothing or perhaps everything. On one hand tags and scribbles in Jerusalem are pretty similar to ones you may encounter anywhere else in the world from Berlin to Tokyo or New York. On the other hand, every city has a unique structure to its undercurrents, a different atmosphere, mentality, politics and of course slang. Graffiti and street artists reflect all that in their works and as you will see in Jerusalem graffiti and street art do the same.

Itinerary

We'll stroll through down-town Jerusalem and identify various graffiti and street art pieces, discover the forms and the language they use. From simple tags to big murals, from political messages to mainstream street art that was actually endorsed by the authorities. We will try to answer the questions posted above, and especially, differentiate between the mythological and modern Jerusalem through what we see on its walls today.
