Born in Shepparton Victoria in 1975 contemporary artist, Tank, has been oil painting for over 15 years. Inspired and influenced by his rural upbringing and extensive travel to over 20 countries, Tank's works often express a satirical and somewhat morose interpretation of society and human interactions.
On The Wrighter (http://www.thewrighteronline.com) Tank answers five key questions that Wright intends to ask most of the artists featured on the blog from May until the end of summer (2012).
When asked about his favorite and recent purchase, Tank replied, “A few weekends ago I bought an old black Bakelite telephone (circa 1930) from a small country market. I think it’s such an iconic object from history and I’m sure it will end up in a painting one day.”
The Wrighter is scheduled to feature one artist per week as the planned features are rolled out on the heels of the recent sell of one of Wright’s own paintings titled, “Newton’s Attraction,”
Wright is a California native who earned her degree from the California State University, Fullerton. She has created several art series, including, “Fractured,”
Wright has also written several books, including, “50” and “A Crime And A Simplification Of Something Sublime,” the latter includes several of her sketches. She has performed in theater productions, independent films and commercials and is currently working on a series of short films.
