ISRAEL

Streetart Tel Aviv

We sneaked away again during the cold months. Overwintering somewhere far more in the south, definitly very recommendable. Of course we brougth a nice collection of street art pictures and graffiti material from the place we went to: Israel. As well we went for an interview to the since 10 years existing Montana can shop in Tel Aviv. The country has a lot to offer and is worth an explorative visit.

Streetart Florentin – Tel Aviv

Florentin is actually a part of Tel Aviv, we wrote already about its street art. But Florentin deserves a special part about the graffiti and the particular surrounding. The walls are covered with nice artwork and the extraordinary mix with the industrial buildings is phenomenal. It is as well a very interesting place if you want to directly observe and study some kind of half-functioning but still developing gentrification. Some streets are in perfect hipster manner, there are chick bars and nice cafes, a lot of alternative and different styles. But just around the corner there is as well the factory quarter, between dirty roads and market streets all over. Its a fantastic mix. There the stylo cafes, on the other side is one car repair shop next to each other with a scrap head in front of the place. Just the architectural commingling is fantastic.

Capzoola Can Store – Tel Aviv

During our stay in Tel Aviv we surprisingly found out there exists a Montana Can Shop in town. Self-evidently that we visited that place. Lalo and Andrew run the can store named Capzoola since 2007 in the city center. With a lot of work and effort they made it that far and the shop is meanwhile a little institution if you need anything around paint and colors. In the beginning they started selling the cans from underneath the bed. More than a decade ago they opened the nice space in Geula Street 42, „zoola“ from Capzoola means „cool place to chill“ in Hebrew.
