Two of the walls that enclose the grounds of Terra Sancta College in Amman are covered with street art. Most of it was painted as part of Baladk 2016 (art festival). One of the walls features the red and white “name tags”, you know the ones that say “Hello, my name is….”. The first one though has “city” instead of “name” because the general theme of Baladk 2016 was ‘Our City – The influence of the City upon yourself as an artist’.

As an aside, I saw one other Bully mural elsewhere in the city. This knight in armor seemed to be on its own.
