'Long Live the Unbearable Lightness of Leek'

oils-expressionism-life


I am a painter who lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Beside making and showing work, I teach art at my studio in Beyoglu, the center of the increasingly vibrant art scene, night life and underground culture in Istanbul. Defined by a loud palette and a sense of sarcasm, my paintings feature dreamlike, surreal imagery. I juxtapose mundane objects, vignettes from everyday life with storybook heroes and outlandish fantastic elements in seemingly irrelevant combinations that lack a sense of worldly time and place, creating their own reality. While, the "pseudo" reality depicted in my work certainly derives from my own conscious and subconscious stream of mind, I aim not only to express myself, but also create an outlet for my audiance as well. I hope most viewers can find a familiar object or situation within the composition, use it as an entry to the work, perhaps try to make sense of the mayhem. I wish for my work to eventually emancipate the viewer's mind to fantasize their very own schizophrenic counter reality.
