Beirut street art continued
Before more taxi driver stories (currently working on the “incredible stories” part of the triptych) will find their way to this blog, let me first show you some more stencil art straight from the walls of Beirut.
Also, here I have a link to Ella’s blog, you can see her make some of the paintings I took photographs of.
Found this one on a construction site on Hamra street.

I think this is the same artist as the “triangulated city” stencil from the last street art blog. Anarchism is still alive in Beirut… At least on the walls it is.

Getting ass-raped by the grim reaper. “Bareback” is a part of a larger group of stencils and graffiti artists in Beirut that deal with homosexuality. There is even a website on the top-10 gay stencils in Beirut. Click here to view.
This one is obviously also part of the gay stencil art series… Nice eh?
This one is fairly self-explanatory
This particular wall provided a lot of material…
