You cannot miss the graffiti in Tel Aviv… that is, if you go to the cool areas! We did a tour with a local graffiti artist, which was a special tour thanks to Vibe Israel. Unfortunately, I don’t think he typically does tours or lets people graffiti themselves, but if you’re really keen, it can’t hurt to ask him on his Instagram: @orenfischer.
We hit up an art gallery first and got to understand what journalism is like in Israel. Every country is different in how they allow journalists/bloggers/news to have “freedom of speech”, some countries better than others. It was awesome to meet with some local writers who write about politics in their country and don’t hold back.
After meeting in the gallery at Romano House (Beit Romano), we were off to see Oren’s graffiti. He’s actually really well-known in Tel Aviv (or at least his art is). Another well-known guy has a tag which is a band-aid (tags are like graffiti artist signatures- you might know this but if my mom and dad are reading they probably didn’t lol). See if you can find the band-aid below!
