The Beatles’ legacy has held an iconic prestige amongst musicians and music enthusiasts but in Prague, it goes a step further. John Lenon, known across the world, for the peace-loving and harmony-inducing music became the harbinger of rebellion in Prague in the 19th century. His death in 1980 effectively summoned the pacifist youth of Prague to this one commonplace wall as a form of nonviolent protest and painted graffiti championing for a free Czech from the archaic rules of the Communist party. Since then, the John Lenon Wall has excited as a vibrant symbol of peace and freedom, not only in Czech, but inclusive of the rest of the world.
An unknown artist, started this movement without any intention, when he first painted John Lenon’s image along with some of his song lyrics after his death.John Lenon, who never really visited prague in his short life, became the driving force that brought together a lot of like-minded liberal individuals which then led to the Velvet Revolution of 1989. John Lenon inspired graffiti much like art and resistance continued to grow despite the efforts of the Communist Party and played an instrumental role in the freedom of Czech.
