The small graffiti ‘intifada’ depicts an Arab woman wearing a black and white shawl similar to the one the late Yassir Arafat wore when he came to New York and addressed everyone at the UN. It was that familiar black and white weave pattern made famous by Yassir and his PLO which Palestinian activists continue to use today.
I spotted this unique ‘arteesta’ art painted on the concrete base of an electrical utility pole snuggled up to a garage’s outer wall in an alleyway. This utility setup was a combination of a wooden pole set into the ground with a half circle concrete base for two steel pipes anchored into the pole’s side with steel straps. The tiny graffiti was on that concrete base and would normally remain unnoticed because a viewer’ attention would be taken by a large amount of very colorful graffiti on the garage’s outer wall.
Although the large graffiti was colorful and somewhat interesting, I didn’t find it appealing to me enough to use for a blog post although I did photograph it and it was then that I spotted that miniature graffiti.
