I am a multi media artist, working in the painting tradition as well as virtual reality, video, sound, drawing, sculpture, photography and installation. Dream, alter state, illusion and perception are recurring themes in my work in that I am intrigued by the fact they hold illusive and yet convincible qualities. Reflecting the emotional dimensions of memories, collected histories, and cultural myths, I am affected by those with untold, sometimes overwhelming, hidden perspectives. Painting as a medium is for me, currently the most engaging way to exercise that allowing of the mind to unleash so the idea can dictate the work freely.
After graduating from Fine Art Academy in Istanbul, I studied 1st year MA Visual Art at Falmouth University in 2007 and Brighton University in 2017. In 2012, I had my first solo show at Norwich Arts Centre that is followed by two more solos including Bridport Art Centre and Newlyn & Exchange galleries in 2014. Exhibiting internationally in group shows since 1999, I have been awarded 2nd place in photography competition by Nashville Arts Magazine in America and runner-up by both Centre On Migration, Policy, and Society by Oxford University in England and Ultra Short Movie Challenge in Scotland in 2014.
