Born in Istanbul, he currently lives in London.
“ All of my projects are constructed from the things I have lived, and my feelings toward those experiences, but they do not represent me in my entirety – they simply represent parts of me. I transform certain responses I have to the world into a visible form. The things which I experience create new thinking fields. Firstly, I move around in every inch of that field and I absorb what I can, I put myself right in the middle and at the edges. I accumulate all this in my mind. Finally, arrive at a point where I’m about to be overwhelmed, and then I start to create. It is this moment in which things come into the light, that I am able to transform them into images. I dwell on the concept of chaos and duration for a long time and tried to learn about the thoughts and the psychological phases that my models are in. My works, which I define as unconscious manifestations, show proximity to that which is psychological and chaotic; and to situations and traumas that are specific to humans.”
