Join us for an authentic tasting journey, between different times and religions, through the Old City of Jerusalem between the walls. We will hear about the rich history of the place, which made it sacred for the three religions, we will walk through the different districts, we will see all kinds of people, we will taste an abundance of foods and we will hear the most interesting stories. We will start with a local original coffee, taste a pastry in a bakery that has existed for over 400 years, visit an old and hidden tahini factory and taste black tahini, find out what makes chickpeas the best, smell spices with special qualities, hear about a business that goes on for generations. The ancient, the only institution agreed upon by all as the best in its field. We will take you through the narrow and lesser known alleys, visit beautiful views and together we will open our mouths and hearts to all the abundance that the Old City has to offer.

What happens to street artists when they become FAMOUS?

What happens when a street artist starts exhibiting in galleries and distributing his art in a “conventional” way?

There are works by artists that have been completely outraged by friends of the artist. Why? To convey to him the message that he was ‘no longer ours’, that he was trading and forgetting his origins, which were the street and the street culture.

Over the years, artists who started out on the streets of the city and usually at a young age, found their way into the art world and began to develop into all kinds of niches and directions such as plastic art, tattoo art, photography, writing and more.

The graffiti world, despite being so open and open, is also a closed bubble that has competition, collaborations, great thought, and interactions. Sometimes artists join together to create collaborative works, and sometimes they ‘don’t get along’ and cover and cover each other’s works.

There is a very interesting work in the Thirteenth quarter in Paris that really describes the reaction and thought of one of the artists! The work was done by a French artist named Bom.K who made a thank-you and appreciation to his friends the graffiti artists, in which he expresses his appreciation to his friends who taught him everything he knows about street art and the use of the library, even though today he presents in galleries! He created a large-scale painting that included the artist’s life story and filled with petty details and interesting hints, so that he actually conveyed the message that without them he would never get where he is today, and that he will never forget them. It’s Paragon!

What signs and clues did you spot? Notice the little contexts in Paris and childhood experiences!

 
 

Another artist and one of the Israeli street artists we love the most is Dede. He calls himself “Dada Bandida” and he began to paint large, small, special, curling, long curves and all sorts of variations on the streets of South Tel Aviv.

The amazing thing is that he never revealed his real name or face, which adds a dimension of mystery and secrecy to his artistic personality (:

Many of his works can be found in Florentine, Neve Tzedek, along Ayalon Path, South Tel Aviv. And today in New York, Mexico, Miami, Poland and he is really an international artist! There is a chance that if you drive on Ayalon you will notice a number of plasters peeking out of the buildings (:

In addition to the plasters which are his hallmark, Dede also draws figures of barking animals, and also very specific works such as the Yellow Submarine near Ayalon Road. The new item added are plasters stockings!

One of our favorite works done with Nitzan Mintz is on the south of Herzl Street in Tel Aviv, on a whole wall, welcome to go looking! You can see more on his site.

Another artist worth noting is Dan Grover: an Israeli-French artist who was born and raised in Paris, the City of Lights, where he also began graffiti, tagging and street art.

He started over 30 years ago in the Caribbean and now lives and works in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and he has a studio-gallery in the Florentine neighborhood worth a visit !!

He is a champion of free hand methods, tagging (spraying artist’s street name artistically) and teaches us graffiti courses in the studio! Some of his works have an artistic and unique connection to Judaism, whether it is the use of stylish Hebrew letters (such as the old synagogue on Abarbanel Street in Tel Aviv!) And to paint figures and symbols in religious contexts.

And leave you with a cool task:

His signature is also in a lot of corners in the city, can you identify it in the picture ??
