2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I mainly focus on the situated emotions which are sometimes fleeting and sometimes flashed back. They consist of queer temporality and imagination.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I mostly work digitally. For me, it is the most familiar medium. I think the nature of the digital is connected to the way I view the world. I am interested in the possibilities that digital work can show us, such as being shared and displayed in a virtual space or being transformed into material media.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I usually get ideas from everywhere around me. I simply sketch the images that come to mind and then make a detailed composition. I do all my work with digital tools.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work? 

I get inspiration from my experiences with my everyday activities and also from my daydreams, cartoons and movies.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

Art works like meditation. It sometimes gives me chances to face directly to my unconscious memories. I realize and understand new dimensions of the relations, events, and emotions through every act of painting.Β

9. What about in ten?

I cannot imagine where I will be after ten years. All I can do is trying to spending a good time with beloved people.Β

10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?

I just want to continue to fail and try to reveal a certain side of everyday’s queerness through painting.
