63 Lions
temporary installation
Jerusalem, Israel, May 2011
collaboration with Joseph Connelly as Gordon & Gordon Art

During the 3 weeks between Israel's 63rd Indendence Day and 44th Jerusalem Day, we set ourselves the task of painting 63 lions. The lions are imprinted on benches around the city. They are outlined in holes and are quite hard to notice.  After we painted them gold, they were much easier for people to notice

In part, this is our answer to Style War 2 - a graffiti explosion in the downtown area. The gold calls attention to itself by enhancing what is already there, but at the same time does not stick out. We painted mostly late at night.  Many people have told us that they never noticed the lions before they were painted gold.
