Wall art in Florentin neighborhood is tongue in cheek
One of Tel Aviv’s main Graffiti hubs, lies in the southern neighborhood Florentin. Florentin is laid back bohemian and trendy, with little cafes and bars.
The graffiti in Florentin, much like the city itself, can perhaps best be described as ironic and self-absorbed.
In Florentin I didn’t come across images that express violence and death such as those I saw in Medellin Columbia. Nor were they breathtakingly beautiful and monumental like those of Kobra, which I was fortunate to see in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
However, walking along the allies of Florentin you will get a delicious bite out of Tel Aviv’s vibe. Colorful and wise-ass, with a lot of up to date urban charm.
