Berlin graffiti artists Boa, Hocus and DURO256 painted a 20 metre long piece of the original Berlin wall that was especially rebuilt for the art work to celebrate the release of Overkill's 'Berlin Wall' collaboration with New Balance. As the guys from Overkill explain, 'as some people might remember, the former Berlin Wall was completely painted during the Cold War. At that time lots of artists expressed their feelings and wishes to end this war on one of the biggest canvases ever seen. Our aim was to bring back the spirit, even a little, to show what Berlin and Overkill is all about: reminiscence of a turbulent history, living for today and making the best of now and rocking the future with style.'
