Earlier this morning, we showed you the video of The L.A. Wall being torn down. Now, here are photos of the art before it was destroyed in celebration of the Berlin Wall's falling 20 years ago.

The Wall Project, which brought 10-pieces of the real Berlin Wall to Wilshire Boulevard with new artwork by Berlin-based and local artists (it's still on display through Saturday, see the first two photos above) and the temporary L.A. Wall last night (the remaining photos), was mainly the product of the Culver City-based Wende Museum Cold War Archive.

L.A. Wall aritsts included Thierry Noir, Shepard Fairey, iLia Anossov, Asylm, Jaime “Vyal” Reyes, Axis, Jennifer Puno, Brigid LaBonge, Timo Fahler, Meleko Mokgosi and Judi Jensen.
