Art with a Conscience...
The art that I create is in honor of my mother who passed away after more than a decade-long fight with breast cancer. However, her legacy was more than her illness. She taught me the most important and beautiful lessons I have ever learned: how to love, live, and believe.
Love, life, and faith are the foundations of my work.
For me, all action, but art specifically is about purpose.
In history, art has always been a reminder for civilizations of the beauty around us and within us. As I walk the cobblestoned streets of Istanbul, I gaze at the magnificence in architecture and complexity in design that embody this ancient city. One can easily be consumed by the majesty of this city and by the impact of countless civilizations on it. However, it reminds me that although too often humanity has proven to be weak and frivolous, greatness is possible.
It is part of my artistic mission to revive that beauty. For me, art is not just a creative outlet or a way to express myself. It is a way to celebrate life in all its intricacies. It is a way to inspire, to heal, and to remember.
