Born 1975. Lives and works Basel, Switzerland.
First Thierry Furger sprays normal pieces on large metal and aluminium boards. Later they are cleaned or over-painted by the artist by exactly the same means as the official train staff uses when they apply a so-called graffiti-killer. So he developed his series “Buffed Paintings” . In the language of the writer, “buff” stays for the place were trains are cleaned.
