L'Atlas & Tanc
Amsterdam, February 01 2018 - March 17 2018

French artists L’Atlas and Tanc have been working side by side for more than 15 years, questioning the link between reflection and realization in their works. For the first time, their collaborative works will be shown in the Netherlands. Vroom &Varossieau Urban Contemporary Art in Amsterdam is proud to announce their new exhibition: Substances. The exhibition will be held at our gallery in Amsterdam and will run from the 1st of February 2018 until the 17th of March 2018.

About the artists
Jules Dedet Granel better known as L’Atlas was born in 1978 near Toulouse but he grew up in Paris. Where he started street writing graffiti and tagging in 1991, inspired by emerging subcultures like hip hop and rap. He then returned to Toulouse, to study Art History and Archeology. During his studies he met Smail Bour Quaiba, a traditional calligraphist who invited him to spend three months in Morocco learning classical calligraphy. This is where L’Atlas love for calligraphy and ultimately calligraffiti was born. He is well versed in “avant-garde” artistic concepts, the history of Calligraphy and Philosophical and Theological readings. As an artist he devoutly applies his life principle of being thoughtful with your actions while also surrendering to faith and chance. In his own unique way he creates the perfect balance between Calligraphy and Optical Art on the canvas. When he works, he reaches a state of meditation where spirit and hand respond to one another. His artworks aim to appeal to people on an emotional level and call on us to embrace life and look at art and the city from different perspectives.

Tancrède Perrot aka Tanc is a Parisian artist born in 1979. His work is characterized by a very unique style, that mixes a contemporary kind of abstract expressionism with a graffiti influence and background. His exploration of the possibilities of the line allowed him to immediately stand out as an artist amongst his peers. His work strives towards synthesis of his name, of tags, of individuals, music and life. He does not seek perfection, but spontaneity. His creative process allows him to carelessly give in to his mood, led by music, emotions and vibrations. Guided only by his inter rhythm. When inspired, Tanc also obsessively and endlessly duplicate his process and style until total exhaustion. Between contemplation and expression, his paintings sit somewhere between abstract and figurative art.

Substances is the loud union of color and rigor, the encounter between two personalities, thetempting alchemy of textures. Where one gives into randomness, the other embraces continuouscontrol. Despite the difference in technique and creative process, their universe gathers around “ledon de soi”: the self sacrifice. Their collaboration is based on harmony and their artistic partnership is one of total equality. They continues to find recognition of the one in the other, giving the viewer a glimpse into their souls.
