It has been 20 years now since the fall of the Berlin Wall and therefore the city of Berlin decided to restore the paintings of the wall asking the original artists. I went out there and got really inspired by those amazing abstract paintings and to took some photos to share with you.
The East Side Gallery is a special place, where art has become the expression for a unique point in time of the history of a separated Germany. It is a meeting point that talks about an old Berlin and a new Berlin, a separated and a unified Germany.
Original Paintings: 1990 Restoration: 2009 | If you have the chance to visit it you should definitely do that, not just because of these images I've selected, but there are awesome things you could check out in Berlin as well. Enjoy.
By the way you can make a search on Google to see the old paintings..a huge difference.
