Photos from London

“Art is too important not to share.” – Romero Britto

Tim took a photo while he was having his bike serviced…thanks son! This is a streetart by Thierry Noir in Shoreditch, London. I believe it is fairly new and this one can be found in Holywell Lane, if any of you may be around that area.

Thierry Noir’s trademark characters are minimalist with a bright colour palette. According to history, he was the first artist to do large murals on the Berlin wall in 1984.

    When I first read your opening quote, I read it as “art is too important not to stare” !!! Blame it on bad eyes! and reading too quickly!

    Upon reflection, it is also true enough. Especially with murals as funny & stunning as these … to stop, gawk and stare!

  2. This reminds me a bit of Picasso, except for the lips.

      That is a bit like a Picasso and Angelina Jolie.
