DESCRIPTION

In recent years, walls and derelict building in Tel Aviv, mainly its center and south, have been covered with various images: from simple slogans and complex graffiti to carefully executed colorful compositions. These works, some in large format, some small and hidden, are unique in the daring and innovation they demonstrate regarding street/art relations, and display the various styles of the artists and their techniques (aerosol, acrylic, pasting and stencils). The works, some colorful, some black and white, are all made clandestinely and illicitly, and their execution requires skill, talent, speed and excellent spatial perception. The exhibition presents the major street artists active in Tel Aviv, the various media and styles they use, and their different ways of dealing with the shift from the bustle of detail-laden streets to the Museum's white walls.
