Description

Tankpetrol is a Polish street artist,based now in Manchester. Stencils are his main medium, which he entangles with carefully placed background details, making neat, well-executed art pieces.

Born in 1982 in Poland as Irek Jasutowicz, he spent his teenage years doing graffiti tags all over the city.  In the later years, he joined the army, where he was a tank driver and tank gunner – and that’s from where his moniker originated. After quitting his army job, in 2006 he moved to Manchester in search of a decent paid job which he couldn’t find in Poland. It was in Manchester where Tankpatrol first got in touch with stencil art, inspired and influenced by anonymous street artists.
Resident artist at Sketch City and Polish Invad Arts Collective, Tankpetrol has gone on to be commissioned by Sven Vath, Channel4, Diesel, Carhartt, San Disk and Red Bull. He has done live art for many UK and international festivals and events including Sketchcity, Kendal Calling, Mad Ferret, Eurocultured, D-percussion, Snowbombing Austria, Way Out West in Sweden and more. Tank has also exhibited internationally.
