Photo of paintings by Thierry Noir on The Berlin Wall in Berlin, Germany

This is part of the East Side Gallery, a stretch of the Berlin Wall that is 1.3km long and that has been preserved and restored as a memorial to freedom. This gallery has over 100 paintings by artists from all over the world. These paintings of heads are by Thierry Noir. While the Berlin Wall was still standing, and defended by East German guards, he was one of the clandestine artists who painted the west side of the Berlin Wall. On his website, he says he chose "simple figures, fast of execution" and was "always painting with one eye, the other watching for soldiers". He has continued to contribute to the East Side Gallery since the wall fell.
