Modern Street Art meets Smeg FAB refrigerators

Unique in decoration.

French artist, Thierry Noir was recently in Sydney at the invitation of Winning Group CEO, John Winning, to paint the exterior of his home. A neighbour’s objection over colour selection led to council approval and in the downtime Noir painted Smeg’s FAB refrigerators.

The result is six FAB refrigerators that are global firsts and form a very limited edition. Unique in decoration, on a selection of black, red and white refrigerators, each piece took the artist a full day to complete.

Smeg FAB32 refrigerators (RRP $3290) are available nationally from appliance specialists and electrical retailers in a range of colours.

Noir was recognised as one of the forerunners of Modern Street Art, honing his distinctive style on the Berlin Wall in the early 1980s. Each day, for five years, he painted the wall with his bold, cartoon-like characters. A style he labelled Fast Form Manifest.

Since the wall came down in 1989, Noir has been invited to paint on remnants of the wall and other street projects in Mexico, the US, South Korea, the UK and many other countries.
