Ugur Caliskan has been examining the entire findings of humanity on the basis of existentialism and expressing them in his art works. He has the point of view of constructive post-modernism and has serious criticisms on determinist formations caused by modernity . He believes that chaos has its own dynamics and exact truths increases the illusions in peoples’ minds.
The major is sue in my paintings is what philosophers and artists have been asking for centuries, effort to find esthetically the most beautiful one, that is, raw esthetics.
Why do all ask for this beauty? Why do Kant, Hagel, Schelling and other philosophers and artists look for it? What is the matter with them? That is also what it means to me. I assume myself as a part of this phenomena like a single cell. I try to understand and describe beauty of this cycle that I belong to as much as a single cell can do that for entire system. The problem is all about the boundaries and limits of our understanding mechanism, but at this point feelings come into scene and make it possible for us to go further. The raw esthetics inside us always calls us and whenever we perform works similar to or close to that, We say ourselves "That is it" and sign under it, these are also originated from the effort of reaching the sublime. What is all this effort to reach? Why does it attract us? Why do we call it as esthetically beautifull which makes us feel great? Maybe that is the hard to solve and uncertain thing. I try to reach where my feelings lead me, and my works reflect it. If I am happy about the result and like it, I sign under it. If you like it too, that means we have something in common and share it, if not, it means nothing. Actually that is almost what life means.

Uğur Çalışkan, sanatsal çalışmalarında varoluşçuluk zemininde insanlığın ürettiği tüm bulguları incelemekte(buna yanılsamalarda dahil ) ve yapıtlarında dışa vurmaktadır. Olumlayıcı postmodernist bakış açısına sahip olan sanatçı, modernitenin ürettiği determinist oluşumlara ciddi eleştirilerde bulunmaktadır. Katı ve kesin doğruların insanların yanılsamalarını arttırdığını söyleyen sanatçı, kaosun kendi iç dinamiklerinde doğruyu bir şekilde bulduğuna inanır.
