In 1982, French artist Thierry Noir moved to West Berlin, chasing the music scene created when David Bowie and Iggy Pop moved to the German city. Over the course of the years, he began illegally painting the western side of the ominous wall that separated the Berlin he knew, from the Communist East, being the first to start the tradition of painting the wall in order to “demystify it.” as he says. Working quickly, Thierry painted sections with his large simplistic, colorful “Big Heads”, which could be painted quickly under cover. His miles of pieces, which break down into 8? x 12? sections that are over 2 tonnes each, are the most recognizable and have survived best since the wall came down in 1989.
