Next to Dad
Born and raised in a culture where a father is the most influential figure in the family, I got a lot of inspiration and motivation from my father. When I was a kid, he introduced me to various things based on his skills, one of which was drawing. He told me to distinguish between a hobby and a passion. “You can easily envision your future if you keep doing the things you are passionate about.,” he said. Starting from the idea of being passionate, for me drawing is a form of expression where we can depict our story in a visual embodiment. I have kept on track with my interest in visualizing the personal desires I want to share through my drawings. In my current practice, I try to engage memories and personal desires through family albums, attempting to find a connection through moments from the past and present. For me, the past is part of my self-development. I believe every moment has its own value, past, present, and future. As a multidisciplinary designer, my work is developed in the scope of art, visual communication, and design, using mediums such as drawing, photography, video, and editorial design.
