Kyrill Constantinides Tank
Janus Neinus Vielleichtus

Whilst working in a museum bookshop, artist and poet Kyrill Constantinides Tank draws on postcard-sized pieces of paper what he sees or comes to his mind. ”The New Colleague,“ ”How My Boss Sees Me, When I Am Angry,“ or ”Daniel Richter Loses Touch With the Youth“ show scenes of a work routine in the museum or ideas that arise in such a setting. They relate to a life between artistic creation and wage labour. But besides his subjective view, Constantinides Tank also brings the very common to paper: Garfield, Charizard and the Simpsons belong to everybody and have been drawn like this countless times. When there is a patch on the paper or the drawing itself becomes a technical experiment – as in ”Fidget-Spinner Drawing”: apparently the attempt to make a drawing with a fidget spinner – it becomes obvious that the author trained as a painter and constantly deals with the borders and possibilities of painting. By drawing them, Kyrill Constantinides Tank, in a Bavarian anti- bourgeois tradition, overcomes the daemons and banalities of labour, mass media and art history.
Kyrill Constantinides Tank is an artist and poet. He works in a Buchhandlung Walther König branch and is winner of the 26th Open Mike literature competition for poetry. He lives in Munich.
