Li Hill – Rise and Fall

Our man Li Hill recently finished up a new mural in Berlin for the One Wall Project by Urban Nation. The Toronto born multidisciplinary artist knocked out a giant black and white wall using his signature expressive figure subject matter. Here’s what he had to say about the project:

“Based on two source points, a famous statue in Berlin based on the greek goddess of Victory (Siegessäule/ The Victory Column) and the film Wings of Desire by Wim Winders, where an angel becomes human to experience the world. As well as speaking to the spirit of renewal and reinvention, this piece at its core is based on the fragile and unsustainable concept of constant progress and the fallacy of victory. All empires are bound to fall but something new is always born from it.”
