The elusive Tel Aviv street artist Know Hope is known to his admirers as Israel’s answer to Banksy. The artist, who is in the UK to paint a mural for students at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, creates cardboard cut-out figures and painted scenes on street corners, lampposts and pavements of Tel Aviv. He talks to Jessica Elgot about art on the streets of Israel, avoiding politics, and the new trend for graffiti in the Holy Land.
