​Two very small paintings I have made about very sad pictures I have found on google. I think that there is beauty in these men's figures as one of them fell asleep with his brush still in his hand, beside his cry, and the other staring right to the camera as he is threatening the crowd before burning himself in front of PTT.

Ankara is the capital of the Turkish Republic, and the city I was born and raised.

The following paintings are a selection of 15 buildings that can be found on the main highway that takes you from the airport to the city centre. 

The architectural style that has been developed mainly on this highway is approximately ten years old, when we decided that the very naive republican period architecture was not imposing the richness and the splendour.  We decided to change the front of the buildings to this absurdness and leave the sides mostly as they are, just as a Potemkin Village.

I have found all these buildings via Google Street View. I have kept the perspective  as they are appeared on the programme. I think that these perspectives go well with the architectural works.

​15x A4, 1x 50x70cm acrylic on paper, 1x 55x45 cm facade.

''Happy Feast of Sacrifice''
50x70 cm acrylic on canvas

Three paintings, all about the municipal sporting equipments, in around Turkish cities, for the citizens to benefit from.  
The mayor, opening the sports complex, The grandma, and the lovers.
I have researched google for the images of the equipments and made a selection of three.


A mixture of best wish images, and prayers.
Some of the images are collected from the internet, some of them designed by yours truly.
Translations and definitions are written below each image.
The language used in these wishes are meant to be artificial, I tried to keep the poetic absurdness while translating.
