If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
I was born in Ankara .I have completed my primary,junior high and high school eduction in Ankara.During the years 1991-1995,I have attended the Fine Art Department of the Gazi University;I have concluded my studies in the workshop Bünyamin BALAMİR,Tahsin HANCIOĞLU,Cengiz SAVAŞ.
In 1995,I have started my duty as teacher of drawing in Ardahan.
At present,I’m performing my duty as teacher ofdawing at primary school in İstanbul.
About my artwork
I have been and am stil continuing with my pattern Works which represent the basis of my pictures with the fine arts training.
I have started with oil painting initially with torso drawings and their stylisations.Whereas my interest in trees has provided a differend perspective in my painting works.I fount quite different meanings in trees,I perceived a different dynamic in their stagnancy.Further focusing on the subject matter,
I proceeded to points that were different in terms of technique and contents.
Fear formed the subject of my new series.The New Age has also changed and improved mankind’s consept of fear. The stereotype urban way of living,which has been developing along with technology and machinery-bound globalisation, has also brought our fears which we have created by ourselves.
FEAR shall continue to be the most intense feeling of our life from the antiquity to the future.
During the last year, Ihave focused on a brand new topic under the heading “Culture”. Reflecting the culture,which has improved and changed along with the creation of the world,from the creation of the living creatures, the discovery of writing up to the present,forms the new subject of my pictures.
Artists I like
giocometti, caravaggio , van gogh, kokoschka, beuys,klimt
