Thought Provoking Artworks by Tank

I’ve always been attracted to art which expresses an opinion or idea to generate thought and reflection.

My paintings, which frequently take a critical view of social, political and cultural issues are often a reflection of subjective experiences and sentiments; expressed through the use of common objects placed in unlikely or impossible situations.

The Methodology by which I create can vary, however, I do predominantly prefer to allow the painting to evolve on the canvas, adding and changing until satisfied that the image portrays the intended thoughts or idea.

Overall art brings me happiness. It excites me to create images that I’ve never seen before and to discover how different emotions can be portrayed.
