The wall has continuously been tapped to host pieces of public art and Ghadyanloo’s work is the fifth to have appeared there in recent years. Ghadyanloo told the Globe the goal of his art is to give people a few minutes away from the troubles of the world.

Previous works on the wall have included pieces by the Brazilian twins known as Os Gemeos, Matthew Ritchie, Lawrence Weiner, and Shinique Smith.

Artist Mehdi Ghadyanloo worked on the mural in October.
