I was born in the 28th September of 1993 in Istanbul.I could describe my childhood as both complicated and enjoyable. I was a child who lived within and internalized contrary thoughts and feelings. Much later, I realized that the synthesis which had occurred by the conflict and contrast has fostered my inner world and aspect.Yet, by then I was not aware of it. I was suffering caused by the fact that I was not the person who matched the expectations of the society I was living in. I was not into school subjects at all. During lessons, I used to find myself drawing. When I was asked what I was going to do professionally, the only answer was “an artist”.
When I started high school, I took drawing courses. Later on, in my college years, I studied graphical design at the faculty of Visual Arts. After that, I took Art History classes at Mimar Sinan University. My first experience in the field after graduation was to work in an art gallery.
I also had my interest in psychology. I tried to feed my intellectual hunger by reading articles and books from various sources. Yet, my relationship with the science of psychology went way beyond my curiosity and reflected itself on my works, and led the path to start my journey with abstract art.
Abstract art became a way of expression for my existence in the world. The only way to interpret my existence and the contrast feelings, anxiety, aggression, and passion which I was going through at that moment was to paint on the canvas. My pure, unfiltered, and instant feelings…
Therefore, I can describe the essence of my art as “to stay at the moment”. It is very precious for me to feel that people snatch my instant feelings on my works. Besides their feeling of being understood by someone means a lot to me. To sum up my art vision into a sentence;
“In abstact art, colors are letters of the alphabet; brushstrokes are a way of expressing soul with words and colors.” -Berrarte
