Throughout my childhood, I discovered the gateway to a vibrant world in the coastal town of Bodrum, situated along the shores of the Aegean Sea. Intuitively, I immersed myself in the realm of art, cementing my connection to the world of creativity by winning awards in painting competitions throughout my formative years.

Driven by a passion for creation, I embarked on a career in architecture, initially. However, eventually, I broke free from the constraints of architectural norms and standard drawing techniques, surrendering to the boundless possibilities of the canvas. Departing from the rigid language of conventional architecture, I embraced a fluid and childlike touch, aiming to achieve a hybrid narrative style that seamlessly melds with dreams. Utilizing acrylics, pastels, chalk, and markers, I continue to explore and manifest an eclectic artistic language across canvases of various dimensions.

 

Presently, I reside in Barcelona, where I endeavor to produce works of art that carry the colorful imprints of my childhood experiences from the opposite shore of the Mediterranean. Drawing inspiration from the sea, my intention is to depict the salty texture of the Mediterranean and the unique patterns of the Aegean, as well as the surprising compositions of the Anatolian Peninsula and the Iberian Peninsula on my canvases.

 

By merging my artistry with the enchanting world of the sea and earth, I weave my dreams onto vibrant canvases. I cordially invite viewers on a journey imbued with the warmth of summer breezes and the invigorating salinity of the sea, all through the lens of my architectural and artistic background.
