Although nowhere as wildly diverse as the street art that makes its way onto Tel Aviv’s open spaces, Haifa’s street art — fashioned largely by locals — has a distinct charm that reflects the city’s far less frenetic pace. The image above was painted awhile back by Unga of the legendary Broken Fingaz Crew. Several more that I encountered on my wanderings around the city these past few days follow:

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.
