After braving the cold wastelands of Poland, Tank decided to park up in Manchester with his weapons of choice: spraycans, stencils and secret technique. Initially working on canvases, Tank found himself surrounded and influenced by graffiti and soon started to create work with street art elements, but a unique Tank flavor. Tank creates work inspired by women’s portraits, mixed with geometric shapes and animals. Using a combination of stencils, fonts and traditional paint, Tank is comfortable working across variety of media and projects that include painting, customising, creating large scale murals, interior design and carpentry. No matter what form he works in, Tank’s work always retains a finest quality.
