“Know Hope” Depicts Conflict in Israel

Know Hope’s figures are frequently in conflict with one another or with themselves, with no one appearing to win, and everyone damaged – sometimes with copious blood dripping and limbs askew or missing .  After a visit by Irish street artist Conor Harrington, who did a new piece with him a couple of weeks ago, it looks like Know Hope got inspired to do some new solo wall pieces.  Both of them are quite moving.


This one is particularly well placed in a context of a dilapidated structure – as if the history of the room bespeaks a conflict of it’s former inhabitants, who obviously ran out of time.


This larger scale piece is accompanied around the corner with a poem that some how gives voice to the piece.  I’d rather let the piece speak for itself this time.
