Graffiti and Middle East

========================


Graffiti in the Middle East is slowly emerging, with pockets of taggers operating in the various 'Emirates' of the United Arab Emirates and mainly in Israel and Iran.
Most graffiti is painted in Israel, many crews of graffiti artists are active mainly in the Tel-Aviv and Haifa area. In IRAN the Urban art movement has just began and writers/taggers are down in the streets of Tehran and some other centeral cities of the region like Tabriz,Isfahan and Mashhad.

There are few pieces and little illegal large scale works at present (mainly in IRAN and ISRAEL), but most of the tags and throw ups put up are left unbuffed.
Graffiti is also coming out into the mainstream media, with the launch of a West Coast Customs branch in Dubai leading to a country wide talent search for artists to spray the inside of the new garage live at the launch show. Also The Iranian major Newspaper hamshahri published two artciles on Illegal writers in the city targetting photo coverage of A1one's works on Tehran walls.
In Dubai is also the largest mural in the world done by the Montana writer team in Dubai Festival City.
The separation wall being built by Israel in the West Bank has become a giant graffiti canvas, perhaps rivaling the former Berlin Wall in scale.
A graffiti artist with the name "PURE" has graffiti painted on almost every Arab country. Authorities say that he is a Palestinian-born living in Bethlehem.
