Watch as the graffiti artist iNO paints a wall under black light.
In the 1980s, Noir became the first artist to paint the long, bleak expanse of the Wall, starting a movement that is today one of the most famous things about the structure. His blocky cartoon paintings have become part of the mythology of the Wall, and appear in the Wim Wenders film Wings of Desire.
A retrospective of work by the graffiti artist Thierry Noir that opens on 4 April at the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch, east London, transports the visitor back to Berlin in the last days of the Wall.
Part of the Berlin Wall is recreated in his gallery show to try to bring to life that moment in the 80s when cracks were appearing in the edifice of the Soviet Union and its satellite states, and artists, led by Thierry Noir, were comically transforming the ugly symbol of the Cold War that ran through Berlin with a carnival of bright colours and visual gags.
“Nychos spent his short stay in San Francisco devoted to his Tiger Mural made possible with the support of Chris Shaher of WallspaceSF and Upper Playground with Fifty24SF Gallery. Painted in Nychos’ signature style of exposed skeletal bodies, the massive Tiger scales on a building six stories high and will be a welcomed addition to San Francisco’s city scape by adoring fans throughout the city and abroad.” – Upper Playground
