Rami Meiri’s new book tells the tale of the striking murals he is known for
here and abroad.
Nahalat Binyamin 370.
Rami Meiri went to the wall quite some time ago, albeit only in a positive and
highly pleasing esthetic way.There can’t be too many residents of Tel
Aviv or indeed anyone who has ever been to the metropolis, who doesn’t know the
55-year-old artist’s work. The 1989 mural of the face of the “shouting man,”
with distinctly uneven teeth, eyes shut tightly, hands pulling at the sides of
his mouth and a baby’s bottle in his left hand, which is located strategically
at the mega-busy intersection near the Azrieli Towers, has become a Tel Aviv
landmark. That, and many other Meiri creations from here and all over the world,
can be viewed at the public’s leisure in Meiri’s new book, Talking Walls, which
was launched this week.
