Description Paintings on two sides of a Bezeq utility box
Caption Rami Meiri’s first mural was on the wall of his studio, and then he began painting on any blank wall. Some people no doubt considered that graffiti, but the humor and illusion and creativity attracted attention and he began to get paid commissions and was hired for private murals. Gradually his work spread across Israel and he now has official projects in several countries, teaches workshops and is the subject of documentary videos.
