tanc (france) came to his art as a result of daily practice of graffiti. his strength comes from discovering how to make his name vanish so as to uncover an original pictorial, abstract language. the isolation of the calligraphic stroke applied to the canvas gives birth to a multicolored abstract painting lying somewhere between action painting, graffiti and pop art. tanc composes his paintings like electronic music: by layering. these paintings, which at first sight appear direct and minimalistic, are in fact the result of prolonged inquiry into color and optical illusion.
