"I am troubled by the state of nature, and this is my primary concern. The constructions I create aim to trigger the viewer's imagination by presenting them with a multitude of color variations in a single form, and to open the doors of the mind that have been limited due to various reasons and lead them to the other realm. My work also confronts us with the unnatural, new, and hybridized nature that we have become estranged from, while also expressing my efforts to return to matter, essence, and the familiar nature that we have lost."

First introduced to the design and art world for the first time in 2007, the primary goal of Istanbul Concept brand is to create a showcase that supports the visibility and awareness of artists. To achieve this, in 2017 we established a gallery that embodied this model. Now, in 2023, we are excited to announce the launch of our new project, the Istanbul Concept Studio. With this project, we aim to bring together the artists who are on our radar and provide them with a platform to exhibit their selected works in a new space. Our goal is to create a space where these artists can showcase their talents and connect with a broader audience. We are committed to supporting the arts and artists, and we believe that the Istanbul Concept Studio will play a vital role in promoting and celebrating the work of young or emerging artists.
