In 2012, I graduated from the Graphic Design/Fine Arts Faculty at Mugla University, Turkey. Following my studies, I moved to Istanbul and took on the position as the Junior Art Director at the animation studio Animasyon Cumhuriyeti. To continue my educational path, I picked up a Master’s Degree at the Politecnico di Torino for Ecodesign, Italy. After one year in Italy, I moved back to Istanbul to work as a Research Assistant at Yeditepe University, Department of Visual Communication Design for four years. During this time, I worked as a freelencer for advertising agencies and companies. In 2018, I started to work as a full time freelance artist while I am traveling the world. As a traveling artists I have the opportunity to work on projects worldwide and paint graphic and typographic murals, while exploring creativity and artistic expressions in different cultures. My work focuses on analog design impressions, graphic arts practices on different surfaces.
