Jerusalem Graffiti

Jerusalem Graffiti

I photographed this graffiti on Eliash Street, behind haMashbir department store and the Migdal haIr office building. Graffiti in Jerusalem is seldom so colourful or elaborate. The area is a loading dock behind some of the stores on King George street.

When I was examining the photos the next day on my computer, I noticed this sign from the Jerusalem municipality’s Dept. of Culture stenciled on the wall. This is an officially designated graffiti zone!

The notice says: “Permitted graffiti zone. One who writes or draws on this wall will not be fined. Please do not leave political graffiti or advertisements.”
