Colour Me Inspired - East side gallery

When I recently visited Berlin I stayed a stones throw away from one of my favourite things that I did on that trip. The East Side Gallery is what remains of the wall, the 1.3km is now a colourful gallery with around 106 paintings at any one time. The gallery begins at the former checkpoint charlie. 

The vision for the gallery was to created an international art space that explores the ideas around walls and borders not just the history of Berlin/Germany. I love the concept of artists expressing these themes on a wall that holds such historical significance. Below are a few photographs that I took of the East Side Gallery.
