Old City 2


By View Artist Details

A photo collage inspired by marks and graffiti on doors and walls in Jerusalem’s Old City and Nachalot neighbourhoods. If every picture tells a story, this collection of snapshots, intricately stitched together, conjures up a glimpse of multiple messages communicated to us by unknown phantom writers. Viewed from a distance, the overall effect is striking; close up, the details of each separate image absorb the viewer’s attention and demand greater scrutiny. These unique prints have been signed personally by the artist.

Medium: Photo collage on cotton art paper

Size: 30 x 40 cm/11.8 x 15.7 inches
