Thierry Noir - Revolutionary acts through Art

Excitement has filled our office with only one day to go until the launch of our Postcard Lottery and to add to that excitement we're pleased to announce also featuring in the lottery will be a postcard from Thierry Noir!

Thierry Noir was born in 1958 in Lyon, France, and came to Berlin in January 1982. In April 1984, Noir began to paint the Berlin Wall and is credited as being the first artist to do so. Noir's objective was to perform one real revolutionary act: To paint the Berlin wall, to transform it, to make it ridiculous, and to help destroy it prompting its ultimate fall in 1989.
