Thierry Noir: ‘A Retrospective’ at the Howard Griffin Gallery


Noir embodies the graffiti culture. He was the first artist to paint the Berlin wall illegally in 1984 and he painted miles of it. His act of revolution and anarchy was a way of representing freedom and was a voice for the people. Soon after the wall was ripped down and the legacy of his art can been seen on broken pieces of the wall being sold in Berlin tourist shops.

Noir’s style is that of bright, innocent images. He has a very handmade approach with a strong atheistic value.

Noir has his first solo exhibition after a long 30 year career at the Howard Griffin Gallery, London starting the 4th of April. The exhibition will consist of original works on concrete, rare photos, interviews and short films. To find out more head to the gallery’s website.
