An amazingly bright and visual exhibition at the Howard Griffin Gallery London, dedicated to the art of Thierry Noir, famous for being the first artist accredited to painting on the Berlin wall. Born in 1958 in France, Noir went to Berlin in 1982 aiming to transform the Berlin wall into something ridiculous and to help destroy it.
It was great to see an exhibition space fully utilised and covered head to toe in colour and pattern. Alongside traditional paintings of Thierry’s iconic characters and prints, large sculptures can be seen. These sculptures were a collaboration with Chris Tsonias and made from discarded materials like paper and fabrics.
The exhibition will be on for a whole year and is free, so there’s no excuse not to go and see it!
