Ahava mural

As part of my Illuminated Streets collaboration with Itamar Paloge, we created this mural live at the Derech Bet Lechem Festival (פסטיבל סוכות) in the Baka neighborhood of Jerusalem. The word "Ahava" means "love," and sure enough, the thousands of festival-goers liked it so much we had to shoo them out of the way while they were taking selfies so we could finish painting! Although the mural was painted on a temporary construction barrier, the firm plans to install it at a future site when this building is complete.
