Where some people see ugly, maybe dirty building walls of no certain beauty, Solomon Souza Kohn sees opportunity.

His art can add a touch of brightness or completely transform a space.

Solomon’s huge wall murals grab the attention of passers-by, not just the first time but at each pass. We’ve even seen people sit and discuss his murals at length.

Boring spaces beccome inspiring insight.
Urban blight becomes visual delight?

Look closly and you can see how Solomon’s art uniquely incorporates the electric box and other otherwise unglamourous parts of this wall.

 

shukJerusalem’s famous market —  the Mahane Yehuda Shuk — has long been far more than just a shopping experience for countless visitors from all over the world.

And those who wander though it when the market stalls are closed discover yet another treat — PROJECT JERUSALEM. Rather than streets of plain silver shutters, visitors experience the intriging Solomon artistry — a unique art walk or art museum.

We have a page dedicated to it here, of course.
