Middle East part 1 – Tel Aviv

I spent a week in the Middle East, painting in both Israel and Palestine. I brought my boy Andy with me to film it all so we’ll have a short lil film coming out at some stage. It was one of those trips where you’ve no idea whats ahead. You can only prepare for so much and remain open to all eventualities. I think I need a holiday.

I gotta say thanks to Know Hope and Zero Cents in Tel Aviv for all their help and hospitality. Thats what I love about this world of ours, you can contact an artist in another country that you’ve never met and they’ll sort you out.

So this is the spot that I painted with Know Hope in Tel Aviv. Fantastic central location.

The view from our rooftop.

And then we climbed in here..

And I painted this.

Zero Cents.


Nothing makes a Corkman feel at home like finding his local drink on the other side of the world.

Local street action..

Andy, my man with the camera.

And a few days later I got stuck in to the security barrier in Bethlehem. I’ll try and get my photos from Palestine up in the next few days.


  1. Men..great work, you guys get down real bad i love it.
    If you are in Mexico City feel free to drop me a line n we hang a five


  2. Yeah or u ever wanna come to the NW of the USA (portland, or), ill room and board ya, plus throw in supplies!! lol!!

  3. It’s cool you were able to head down to Tel Aviv. I’m sure it brought some interesting experiences. If you ever think of heading to Wisconsin (of all places), you have a place dude.

  4. Maybe you can slip Guru into your mix of marching soldiers. As weeks pass his passing will drift away from the mainstream news, but there’s no reason we can’t leave lasting reminders for the urban community in one of it’s most beautiful outlets : )

  5. I was looking at those cans of Murphys -enviously – under the Hebrew label – it`s in Japanese – they were bound for me, ya b*ll*x – lookin forward to the video
