Notes

"I’m an artist born in Istanbul, living and working in London.  I’m interested in creating a world in my paintings and prints that is sensual and intimate, using direct and simple marks.

My process consists of looking, collecting, exploring my imagination, and memory to create a sensual, colourful and a humorous world. I am  interested in capturing the essential, omitting concerns for realistic representation.

Intuition and colour are crucial for my practice. I start with observational sketches in location, often  just a line drawing, supported occasionally by colour notes. The bareness and the speed of the sketch leaves room for me  to be inventive later on in the studio in how I use colour and let the memory re-create and distort these direct experiences.

In. 2019 I completed the Drawing Year at the Royal Drawing School, an intense and wonderful year that gifted me a daily drawing practice and wonderful friends. Apart from that, I am a self-taught artist, pursuing my own painterly impulses without the inhibitions of an institutional approach."
