Street art and One Lovely Blog Award

Graffiti in Tel-Aviv

I returned from my vacation this weekend just in time  for the city of Tel-Aviv’s celebrated annual “Loving art – Making art” event.

Over this weekend, hundreds of artists around town open their studios for visitors to view their work and the space & environment in which they create.

Armed with the essential bottle of water and hat, I collected a map marking  the locations of the open studios and headed to the south of the city.

I saw much interesting art and had some intriguing encounters with artists.

What mostly struck me was the street art, the graffiti all over .

Most recently the amazing Marie , from the LE BLOG DE MARIE

nominated me for a “One Lovely Blog Award”.


Please check out Marie’s blog. Thank you  so much, Marie

The rules of acceptance are that I share seven things people do not know about me:

1. I fell in love with Africa during  12  years  of living and travelling there.

I  have  visited Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, South-Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe and more.

2. I am a keen African art and contemporary Israeli art collector. Many art pieces from my African collection are on loan to galleries and Museums for display.

3. Before opening my art gallery I used to lead workshops titled “Love yourself – Heal your life” based on Luise Hay philosophy.

4. Growing up in Haifa, Israel, a hilled city, I never learned to ride a bike! I promise myself that by August next year I will try to acquire this ability.

5. I cannot have a meal with out a tomato  accompanying it. As a child, my parents used to call me “Sara Tomato”.

6. I am ‘addicted’ to all musical programs on TV. I watch American Idol, Israeli Idol, America “The Voice”, Israeli “The Voice” etc. (It seems I  may be a frustrated singer)
