Tel Aviv was never a city I associated with great street art, but it absolutely is. As the most liberal city in the middle East, boasting nightclubs and lesbian and gay rights, the city attracts artists from around Israel. Join me on my instawalk around Carmel Market for the Tel Aviv street art.
Tel Aviv Street Art around Carmel Market
Most of the street art that I found was in central Tel Aviv, located near Hacarmel street. Some of it is politically motivated and sharing views of peace.
I found a lot of art in this particularly colourful style of animals, including a cat, a deer and a giraffe!

Steampunk Street Art of Tel Aviv
One of my favourite pieces of street art in Tel Aviv was the ‘steampunk plague doctors’…
I also found an owl painted in the Gibli style of ‘no-face’ from spirited away.
This crazy ‘octopus tree’ was making its way down the stairs…
Oh, and then I found this two headed ‘frenemy!’
