Erick Artik is a French contemporary artist, he was born in Paris in 1963. L’Artik began his artistic journey at the age of 4, leaving his preschool teachers speechless.
He continued to provoke and surprise all of his art teachers throughout his artistic studies.
At a young age, he was absorbed into a relentless professional career. He has worked in fashion, interior design, and graphic creation, never resting from painting always until this very day.
Modern technological tools offered him an incredible impulsion which boosts his creativity.
London, Paris, New York, Tel Aviv, Miami, Rock music, his angels and demons, everything is subject to his canvas.
Previously inspired by Van Gogh, and Cezanne, he has revisited the greatest in the field of art via the impulsive stroke of his brush. Extremely skilled in the placement of shapes and colors he creates his pieces of art in a very instinctive way. He has a natural ability to share his play on imagery, color and the interpretation of life.
A precocious virtuoso, with a sharp innate mastery of colors and visual spacing. He comprehends the world in images. He has not ceased to express his emotions through a vast collection of masterpieces that have remained secret like a diary, too personal to be shown.
He showed a part of his huge collection for the first time in Miami, during the Art Basel Week of 2013. He was invited by one of the most famous art galleries in the Art&Design District, Marcowicz Fine Art. He unveiled an impressive collection of paintings, all while remaining extremely discreet about himself.
He constructs emotional pieces of art, grandiose in expression, humor, and modernity and at times even aggressive. Erick ARTIK invites us to discover his play on images and interpretation of current trends.
Artik expresses himself through a unique genre of elegant street art, with an interior vision carrying a sense of wonder, contradiction, always enclosing a double meaning.
