Piece of the Berlin wall renovated

The German street painter Jakob Wagner will re-paint his artwork on a piece from the Berlin wall that stands in Borgartún Reykjavík. He will start painting tomorrow, Wednesday August 16th and will paint until he finishes the work.

The City of Reykjavík was given the piece by the art center Neu West Berlin in the year of 2015. The Icelandic weather destroyed the artwork and therefore it needs to be done again. The artwork itself was painted a few years ago and thus it is not from the days of the Berlin wall. Now it will be painted again and hopefully it will withstand the weather conditions in the city.
