Street artists bring color to Israeli streets
A week-long culture festival aiming to 'contribute, share culture and beautify communities with art' is coming to Israel, and artists from around the world are painting the streets of Israel in both beautiful and bizarre murals.

With large murals of black cats and colorful distorted faces, traveling international artists are bringing a splash of colorful street art to towns in Israel and Jordan.

 

 

The eye-catching works, including large portraits and spying eyes, are produced under the banner of the international POW! WOW! event, a week-long culture festival which aims to "contribute, share culture and beautify communities with art."

Having produced pieces at the Dead Sea and Petra in Jordan, the small group of artists, from Hawaii, Tel Aviv and Los Angeles, traveled to the southern Israeli city of Arad, a town in the Negev desert not often touched by street art.

"I came to the artist quarter in Arad to paint some walls, to give some colors and beauty to the place and to the people," Tel Aviv street artist Dioz said on Wednesday as he finished his piece of the large faces.
