Originally from Ile de France, SANK grew up in a small village in Briard, located fifty kilometres from Paris.
He arrived aged fifteen in the Pyrénées Orientales, and it was only a few years later that he discovered the Village of Céret, its museum of modern art with its paintings by Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, and its importance in the Cubist movement; it also presents important artworks of Fauvism and Impressionism.
A dream is looming on the horizon, an idea that has become fixed, that of creating unique works from what has been called “pop culture” with your hands and making them travel around the world.
SANK WAS BORN
His inspirations are varied, each at a specific time in his life.
It started early when he was a child who was rocked by the world of Pop culture thanks to his father:
Mario Bros, Donkey Kong and even Dragon Ball, so many cult characters have accompanied him for many years.
With adolescence came the influence of Hip Hop and the discovery of graffiti, which allowed him to dive into this art and deepen his knowledge and know-how.
With the 3D shapes of his universe, SANK is never far from cubism, knowing that the latter aims to “..propose a deconstruction (…) of the real, never abstract, but multiplying the points of view on the object.”
‘Playful’, ‘confusing’ and ‘captivating’ are the three terms that come up most in the eyes of collectors interested in his work, and these are the feelings that SANK particularly wishes to convey through his works.
