Thierry Noir Artwork Available

Thierry Noir is a French artist who gained international recognition for his significant contributions to street art, particularly as one of the first artists to paint on the Berlin Wall. Born in 1958 in Lyon, France, Noir moved to West Berlin in 1982, where he became a prominent figure in the city’s burgeoning street art scene.

Thierry Noir is best known for his bold and colourful depictions of human faces, animals, and other playful forms. His art is characterized by its simplicity and distinctive, vibrant palette. In the early 1980s, he, along with other artists, transformed the Berlin Wall from a symbol of division into a canvas for artistic expression, creating a powerful visual statement against the oppressive nature of the wall.

Noir’s work played a significant role in the reunification of East and West Berlin, and his contributions to the street art movement have left a lasting impact. Beyond his iconic works on the Berlin Wall, Thierry Noir has exhibited in galleries worldwide, showcasing the evolution of his artistic style and its influence on contemporary urban art.
