Street art in Machaneh Yehudah Market
Machaneh Yehudah Market, some would say the beating heart of Jerusalem, serves as two different arenas in the morning and in the evening. In the mornings the market is full of goods, hawkers and lots of consumers and tourists who come to buy products and enjoy the colorful atmosphere. At night, most of the stalls close and the pubs, cafes and restaurants in the complex remain open. The population that arrives in the morning turns away in favor of the evening population and the atmosphere in the place changes completely. The market streets are filled with revelers and music. When the morning stalls close, graffiti works that were kept rolled up inside the metal shutters all day are suddenly revealed and the whole place takes on a different atmosphere.

Graffiti and street art in the Nachalot neighborhood, Jerusalem
The magical Nahlaot neighborhood of Jerusalem is located between Agripas, Bezalel and Jaffa streets. The neighborhood is built in the form of a courtyard neighborhood (the neighborhood houses enclosed as a sealed inner courtyard frame which was accessed through gates that were locked at night). This construction was typical of 19th century Jewish community building.
On the tour among the neighborhood's low-rise buildings you will find graffiti in a variety of techniques and styles.
Street art in - Talpiot neighborhood Jerusalem
Although the Talpiot neighborhood in Jerusalem developed during the British Mandate, it was designed as a "modern city" and is therefore one of the only neighborhoods not subject to the Jerusalem stone construction obligation that applies to any other neighborhood in Jerusalem. For graffiti artists, the Jerusalem stone is very unfriendly, making Talpiot a perfect Jerusalem compound for graffiti pieces towering on the fronts and sides of high-rise houses.
