Contemporary artist, Soklak, was born is Paris, France in 1977.
When the artist was 8 years old, he experienced his first visual shock in the Paris subway, when he discovered the halls of the stations and the wagon-cars covered in graffiti.
A few years later in 1995, he left his first tags and quickly developed a passion for aerosol paint. Soklak is involved in many artist crews, and paints in numerous waste grounds, leaving his signature wherever he likes.
In the course of 2002, Soklak tries his hand on other supports trying to transcribe on canvas what many years of graffiti experience had taught him, a sort of a summary.
This initiative aims to give a broader field of possibilities to his experiments: by the use of new tools materials and techniques, and thus giving another dimension to his work. Used to paint walls in the time span of few hours, he can now spend considerably more time on making artworks that last.
