Artists 4 Israel brought a select group of the world’s greatest female graffiti artists to Israel to learn about the country and leave a colorful tribute behind.

The visiting artists included CBS Reds (from Miami), Merlot, Hops, 179 (all from Seattle), Elle (California) and Danielle Mastrion from Brooklyn.
