The Wende Museum in Culver City, California has an incredible exhibition called Behind the Wall. It features a mural on remnants from the original Berlin Wall that fell in 1989. The first to leave their mark was duo Herakut and now D*Face and RETNA have painted their pieces. Each work of art is different but unique to them, which adds to the unity the wall’s destruction symbolized. RETNA’s contribution is the red section with mysterious writing, while D*Face decided to paint his own version of Captain America.

It's a great piece - but having captain america break through the Berlin wall may come across as a bit conceited. ;p
