Broken Fingaz

Last month, six widely-acclaimed artists, who have shared their visions throughout the globe, brought their extraordinary talents to Talpiot, a vibrant beighborhood in South Jerusalem. Pictured above is a large segment of a huge mural fashioned by Brazilian artists, Douglas de Castro and Rantao Ferreira aka Bicicleta Sem Freio. What follows are the other five new artworks that surfaced in Talpiot during Walls Festival Jerusalem, produced by Ghostown and hosted by the Jerusalem Municipality.

San Lorenzo, an up-and-coming art district in Rome, is home to a wide range of street art, including a block-long mural by Italian artist Alice Pasquini and a number of poignant stencils. Here are some of the pieces — many timeworn — that I captured.
