Born in 1987 - France
“We used colour like dynamite sticks to make light explode.” These are the words André Derain used to summarise the Fauvist’s pictorial experience at the beginning of the twentieth century. Born in 1987, the French artist Renk shares this same commitment with his illustrious predecessors to liberate colour. Straight out of the urban school of graffiti writing, Renk, a true creator, progresses one step at a time towards his initial idea of expressing the richness of the solar spectrum.
After his first show in 2011, this self-taught artist decided to develop his art further, “It is through overlapping that we can leave tagging behind.” From this evolution has emerged an art form that is more readable and permanent in the respect of painting’s traditional codes. Initially monochromatic, his work turned to colour during the course of the exhibition “Pastel Colours” in April 2015. Following the example of “6 P.M.”, the pieces shown in London represent a new step in the artist’s commitment to transpose something equivalent to the radiant light of the sun through a rich and colourful arrangement.
It is thanks to the artist’s skilful mastery of spray paint, long hours of experimentation and respect for the codes of graffiti that this alteration of artistic reality is possible. The lettering, his name, which he reproduces infinitely on large canvases or wall fragments have become weapons to launch his solar venture into the world of contemporary art.
