Just two short years after moving to Berlin by way of France, Thierry Noir became one of the earliest — if not the first individual — to paint the infamous Berlin Wall. His work, a symbol of the reunification of Germany now known all over the world, typically features seemingly innocent, cartoon-like figures with bright color-blocking. Now — 30 years after he first took his brush to the tall concrete structure — Noir opens his first solo show in London at the Howard Griffen Gallery, exhibiting about 20 paintings spanning those three decades. Check out the above video where he talks about his career, the effects of street art on Germany and more.
