He studied in the seventies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Amsterdam pulled his mo A deed drawing and painting at the Academy of Arts in Lutmastraat images.

Since his time painting and drawing academy Noy in two styles: figurative and abstract. His figurative style developed in the most drawn and painted portraits and model studies. The work was often an abstract still life. That was abstracted still life, repeated and distorted until an exciting lines and a highly developed compositional whole.

These compositions were initially withheld from more colors, color later, a major role in the work of Noy. His later oil paintings are considered a unit of visual excitement, color intensity, design and abstraction.

In the nineties created a fusion of two styles. Increasingly there are elements in the abstract figurative paintings. The woman, often the subject of many pilot studies, takes an important place. Noy start still abstract but now using the abstract as the basis for the model.
