ART OF WAR - THE GRAFFITI OF GAZA
With colorful and meticulous calligraphy, drawings, and huge portraits, Palestinians tell their story on the walls. This popular art's aim is to narrate the story as perceived by the Palestinians themselves. The idea is to glorify different militias for their acts, or to honor those who fell for the cause. The vivid and gaudy colors decorate the whole Strip with scenes, slogans and portraits of war death.
