Meet your art-expert guide in central Tel Aviv, and set off on your 2.5-hour walking tour to discover the city’s thriving urban art scene. Graffiti can be found on almost every street in the city, but it comes into its own in a string of bohemian, southern neighborhoods.
Make your way around the hotspots and, as you explore, gain fascinating insight into the local passion for street art from your guide. Learn how Tel Aviv’s artists embraced the hip-hop movement, creating graffiti that evolved into legitimate street art and daubing on buildings, doors and street signs.
Stop at different artworks and learn how to recognise various artists and their styles. Admire some celebrated masterpieces, and delve into hidden corners and lanes to discover lesser-known works by up-and-coming artists that betray the latest trends.
As you walk and explore, your guide will help you decipher the wit and meanings behind the slogans and murals, many of them controversial, political and expressions of love for Tel Aviv. Discuss the difference between graffiti and other types of art, and analyze the various mediums on show, from paste-ups and murals to stencils and spray paints.
When the time comes, bid goodbye to your guide at the starting point, where your tour concludes.
