The pieces shown on this page are, as far as I can tell, done for the sake of the art, and generally placed in studied locations where they interact with the surface on which they are created (more or less successfully.) They're arranged in the order in which I saw them show up. The crow below is the first I remember.
|Monot. The crow was later revealed to be the work of artist Rafik Majzoub|
|Monot. The fish are possibly his work as well.|
|Rue du Libam|
|Saifi. The Sukleen man, who keeps the streets clean and picks up the garbage, is familiar to all Beirut. In this case he's cleaning up more than domestic refuse...|
|Just around the corner from the Sukleen man and from the same artist, though I don't get the meaning (if any).|
(This person is just walking by, not posing)
|Tabaris. This one is visible all over the city. I read it as a simple happy symbol,|
but it's always possible that in my innocence I'm missing a more devious reference.
|Achrafieh. What is obvious, why is less so.|
|Off Rue du Liban|
|Near the Orthodox hospital|
|Off Bliss Street, a Keith Haring tribute|
|Behind the American University|
|Achrafieh Str. Tribute to Miyazaki|
|Ain el Mreisse, a lineup representing different emotions.|
