Graffiti & Street Art of Tel Aviv
Graffiti has a relatively long and extreme tradition in Tel Aviv. It will only die out when society radically changes, so street art as an intelligent version of graffiti will survive as long as people are open minded. Never forget that urban art existed even in Pompeii 2000 years ago!
Graffiti ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings, and has existed since ancient times, with examples dating back to Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.
Controversies that surround graffiti continue to create disagreement amongst city officials/law enforcement and writers who wish to display and appreciate work in public locations. There are many different types and styles of graffiti and it is a rapidly developing art form whose value is highly contested, reviled by many authorities while also subject to protection, sometimes within the same jurisdiction
