Friday Photo Essay – The John Lennon Wall, Prague, Czech Republic

The Lennon Wall in Prague is one my favorite examples of outdoor art in Europe, and definitely figures among the best example of graffiti art that I’ve seen on my travels. Somehow, despite the randomness of who participates and what they paint, the wall is always beautiful, an explosion of color and a crossroads of unique messages that passers-by are welcome to add to this ever-changing masterpiece. Although I hope no one paints over my favorite quote on the wall,

PHYSICAL BEAUTY IS FLEETING

any time soon. The Czech Capital is overflowing with unusual art, but even among all the cultural gems in the Golden City, the Lennon Wall is a must-see. It certainly merits a spot on my top ten things to see in Prague.
