Florentin – Endless Graffiti

by | Jun 2, 2022 | 0 comments

Florentin is a  neighborhood that doesn’t stop giving. Every corner sports a different form of street art on its walls. A wild, zany and creative collection of illogical art, using various techniques and displaying the talent of various artists. To me, a tour of the neighborhood is like visiting dozens of contemporary art museums. It is out of this mess of graffiti that a logic of time and place emerges, leaving us with a sense of inspiration and elation.

Florentin is in southern Tel Aviv, named after Shlomo Florentin. It is located between HaAliya St. in the east, Elifelet in the west, Derekh Yaffo in the north and Derekh Shlomo in the south.

Florentin is considered Tel Aviv’s “Soho” and it has been experiencing accelerated urban renewal in the past two decades. As such, you will see ancient and dilapidated houses alongside modern and contemporary buildings. The neighborhood exudes a young vibe and alternative atmosphere and the businesses there consist mainly of upholsters, carpenters, jewelry designers, fashion designers, vets and, of course, a multitude of bars, restaurants and cafés.

For this post, I have selected a relatively small collection of the most interesting and prominent works throughout the neighborhood. In some cases, you can expand your acquaintance with some of the creators chosen for the post.

My name is a Dror Hadadi and I have always loved and been attracted to the subversion art of graffiti. The urban art, which takes place in the public space 24/7, captivates my heart.
