NoArt

A true Parisian, born in Paris in 1965, Noart has let his imagination run wild through the streets and history of this city. His opus, called No Art, is a nostalgic reverence to Parisian culture and French innovation with a consciousness for the environment, and a touch of humor.
His art, based on recuperation of industrial parts and objects that would otherwise end up in the refuse heap, takes its original inspiration from Jules Vernes' novel, "20000 leagues under the sea", and its humor from a Warner Bros cartoon (Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner), to create one-of-a-kind pieces that have style and story. Decorum, lamps, or furniture pieces... this is not your typical design. It's futuristic, nostalgic and "tongue-in-cheek" all at the same time, and you've never seen anything like it!

At the age of 20 he received his diploma from the École d'Art de la Rue Madame, and less than ten years later he took part in his first exhibition at the Galerie de Nesle in Paris, called "C'est toujours comme-ça..." Since then he hasn't ceased to reveal his works all over the Parisian landscape, scattered across France and in several places throughout Europe. He has even sojourned in India at an artists' residence at Tamil Nadu where he worked on "The Dune". So one could say he's "going places" but home is definitely where his heart is.

The font of his logo is the same old font used by the RATP, the company that exploits the Parisian underground transport system. If you look closely at some of his pieces, you'll see things that come directly from the walls of Parisian buildings, etc. His work is filled with these "clin d'œil" towards Paris and its inner workings. From the local water company (which is recurrent in many of his pieces) to the aluminum piping, including the nuts and bolts that hold the city together, his art is a deep homage to his hometown.

Where you might see his work:
In addition to designing the mayor's office of the 4th district of Paris, he has also designed several other interesting places.

Pursuing his personal and paved of roguish intentions progress, he does not justify himself and he simply gives his own perception of the world, that he puts “in box”, literally as well as figuratively, and that he reveals through his “électro -métallo-mécanico-ludo-interactive” artefacts.

Recently Noart embarked on the creation of bright mirrors with visual effect “Infinity”, which navigates between Op’Art and contemporary design.
