HV: Is there any Palestinian street art?
MM: Yes, Banksy was an inspiration to many of the younger hipsters in Ramallah at Qalandia where he did some of his stuff on the wall, many others have taken the cue and there are miles of stencils and sprayed messages. There has also always been a history of political graffiti and posters of “martyrs” on the streets of Palestinian cities but that’s not really street art.
