The artists met in Berlin, 2012 and have remained friends ever since. However, the painting of the Berlin Wall is their first-ever artistic collaboration together.
We were fortunate enough to work on this project with Imperial War Museums and both artists. Our technical team provided full logistical support throughout the entire process including, site visits with the IWM Project Manager and STIK, production of risk and method statements, art handling and transportation from the artists’ studio across London to their destination at IWM London.
Each section of the wall weighed 2.6 tonnes, as a result, we used a custom vehicle with a HIAB crane attached.
Both walls were uncovered and secured to the back of our vehicle at the artists’ studios and the journey was filmed as an integral element to the overall artwork.
