Tel Aviv’s Love Car Is Israel’s Graffiti In Motion

Tel Aviv’s Florentin neighborhood is known for its constantly changing graffiti — and for the artists, eccentrics, hipsters, and refugees that call it home. But there is also the Love Car.

The Love Car changes parking spots, resurfacing in different corners of the neighborhood. Covered in hearts, it is a form of moving graffiti.

If the Love Car doesn’t offer passersby enough love, there is also a new homage to Israel’s most recent celebrity, Gal Gadot, in the streets of Florentin. Today’s entry read simply: “You Are Wonder Woman.”
