Artists 4 Israel

What’s Happening

On a wall separating Israel from Lebanon, Zabou of London painted this site specific piece on behalf of Artists 4 Israel. She found the perfect bit of tree peeking over the top of the wall and painted an Israeli girl planting and watering this symbol of peace from within Israel. The saddest and most ironic thing is that weeks later, Israel discovered terror tunnels dug right under this mural.
