Psalms on the Wall
Graffiti interpretations of the book of psalms, by Judy Tal Kopelman!

The book of Psalms is the most familiar book in the bible.
It is read, sung, and recited all over the world – in all languages, all religions, by secular people and by believers.

This series of multilingual, colorful graffiti works, revive the most beautiful, well known verses of Psalms in a modern contemporary language which speaks to all people, of all ages.

Psalms on the Wall’ was launched in 2017, initiated by 929, Israel’s
national bible learning project.
60 different murals were created at various locations all over Israel in public indoor and outdoor spaces – a series of colorful, creative, and sometimes provocative
interpretations of Psalms.
These works were warmly received by the many diverse sectors of Israeli society, as well as by tourists and pilgrims from all over the world.

The Psalms on the wall exhibition is displayed at the First Station in Jerusalem, and now at the Mesilla Promenade. The ancient verses written by King David the Poet are re-interpreted in graffiti street art, in Hebrew, English and Arabic.

These are top quality public art pieces – enjoyable, thought provoking, soothing to the mind and soul. ‘Psalms on the Wall’ now decorates the streets of Jerusalem – where the timeless proverbs and hymns were written by king David – thousands of years ago.

The exhibition is outdoors, open 24/7 and free of charge.

About the Exhibition:

Namaste exhibition at The First Station

For my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” (Isaiah, 56).

One of the most important visions for the city of Jerusalem is its existence as a cultural and religious center for all the peoples. In our art project we chose to convey this message by six huge graffiti murals from different cultures which welcome the visitors by “Namaste” gesture.

The exhibition is on our main stage rooftop – and you can see it 24/7 without any charge.
