June brings heat to the streets of Tel Aviv, and the urban art scene is heating up as well!
Work: Nitzan Mintz and Dede Ad Takeover
Area: Corner of Lincoln and Yehuda Ha-Levi Street.
Introducing a new medium, relatively unused in the streets of Tel Aviv, especially in a scale like this; Nitzan Mintz and Dede take over two huge ad spaces in central Tel Aviv. Nitzan introduced a known poem of hers in a very big scale. Notice that each of the letters was finished by hand. Dede pushed the envelope with a supposedly nude model (it's our beloved gallery tour guide Tali Kayam!) covered with his famous bandaids. Could this be a new series? We hope so!
Work: Tel Aviv Proud stencils
Area: Florentin Neighborhood.
Just in time for the best event in town during June – Tel Aviv Pride parade – here is a selection of some proud stencils that can be found in Florentin neighborhood.
Work: New piece by urban artist Ame 72
Area: Abarbanel Street, Florentin Neighborhood.
Ame 72 is a known artist in the streets of Tel Aviv. He also recently had his work exhibited in the ZK Gallery in San Francisco. A very fresh piece of his can be found on Abarbanel street, this one addresses the issue of global warming, which is very appropriate for our global conditions and the local weather getting hotter and hotter this time of year.
