The Street Art of Florentin, Tel Aviv

This summer, during a trip to Israel and Jordan, I discovered the vibrant neighborhood of Florentin, Tel Aviv. The up-and-coming “Brooklyn” of Israel is filled to the brim with vivacious art pieces, installations, and galleries. Known for its street art, the neighborhood boasts a proud following on social media and attracts tourism to the area, but the secrets within the more niche installations reveal the intimate modern narrative of Tel Aviv–one of gentrification, religious persecution, and the aspirations of younger Israelis to embrace liberal ideologies. The street art of Florentin breeds the auditory with the visual, much like Project 1, as the hum of the city inspires artistic interpretations of life, love, and struggle.
