Kiriyat HaMelacha – Concrete jungle of streetart

Street art lovers, this spot is for you!

Ugly urban architecture lovers, this spot is for you!

Outskirts lovers, this spot is for you! 

Back in the ’60s, this complex served as the first industrial area of Tel Aviv and was a prototype for other complexes around the country: 12 long four-storey “copy-paste” brutalist buildings with basic exterior designs.  As time went by the complex couldn’t hold its purpose and got emptied and stopped being maintained.

A couple of years passed and the natural process of urban renewal started. Nowdays, more than a hundred artists, photographers and other young professionals share workshops and warehouses here. From time to time different cultural events take place inside Kiriyat HaMelacha.

But what I like the most about this complex is the unfathomable amount of street art, which differs from tiny stickers to huge roof-to-ground wall graffiti. Every time I am here, I find new pieces. 

Please, keep in mind that it may be not the friendliest place after sun goes down.
