On the 43rd anniversary of John Lennon’s death, Prague artists undertook the redesign of the iconic Lennon Wall, breathing new life into its historical significance.

The graffiti-laden Lennon Wall in Prague served as a beacon of freedom during the final decade of communism.

In September 2022, artists from across Europe embarked on a transformative project during the Czech EU Council Presidency to revamp the wall. At the core of this artistic endeavor was a three-meter mirror portraying John Lennon.

Even today, the Lennon Wall stands as a powerful symbol of freedom of expression. Immediately following its redesign, visitors from around the globe began adorning it with messages and stickers.

Over time, the portrait of Lennon became concealed beneath a multitude of stickers, according to Pavel Šťastný, a Prague-based artist and the campaign’s initiator.

On December 8, 2023, marking the 43rd anniversary of John Lennon’s passing and the inception of the Lennon Wall in Prague, Šťastný and a group of friends painted a new portrait of Lennon over the accumulated stickers and slogans.
