BIOGRAPHY

Tarek Ben Yakhlef alias Tarek is a French artist: painting, photography, street art and comics. Born in Paris in 1971 and working at Rennes. Member of AGESSA and ADAGP.

"I started painting on canvas in 1990, after practicing graffiti from the end of 1985. I more or less continued the graffiti until 1992, a year after the release of my book Tonkar Paris."

A graduate of the Sorbonne in medieval history and art history, Tarek Ben Yakhlef released Tonkar Paris in 1991 at the age of 19, is the first art book published in Europe dedicated to Spraycan art in Paris. This has become a reference for all lovers of urban art and hip-hop specialists.

He exhibited his first paintings in 1992 at the Chapon space at the major exhibition Paris Graffiti, a landmark since the 1toX magazine is launched at the same time. He participated in the organization of this exhibition and the launch of the magazine: graffiti then experienced its first heyday.

Since 1999, Tarek wrote more than sixty albums with several publishers for whom he met with public acceptance and has won numerous awards including the St. Michael Best Screenplay in 2007 for his series Sir Arthur Benton.

That same year, his work on this series was the subject of a major exhibition of 200 m2 at the Caen Memorial for four months: this was the first time a cartoon was well highlighted in a place history and memory. His comic albums youth are regularly used in schools and in the course of reading since 2004. He regularly lectures on comics, history and contemporary art.
