“My visual designs transcend the hustle and bustle of everyday life to introduce a fresh mix of dream worlds, far away places and the nooks and crannies of nature worthy of any place on earth, or elsewhere. And musical sensibility for the more subtle energy of patterns, textures and colours…”

“This serie is my favorite piece, before getting to it, I was trying hard with searching, looking, listening ; everything and people.  I was mistaken, somethings were wrong or different. Everywhere was full of data and contents, I was understanding for sure but all of them never reached essence of me. While creating this serie, that journey made me to totally get everything, almost like with Baudrillard saying : ‘Everything is to be discovered, everything to be obliterated.'”

“I was drawing mustache onto politicians faces in newspaper when I was 3 or 5, curiosity and modifying things had found new ways while I was growing up. At university, I’ve started to study photography and video but couldn’t stand on the one medium. I don’t choose a medium at first, when the image comes into being on my head, it chooses it’s own way.”

“Open your mind to everything. I mean ‘ everything ‘. Even it’s based on opposite being of yours. Discover it, even if you have to destroy it into little pieces. Understand it with it’s existence. After this, I believe you’ll find yourself with modifying it in your ways.”

“Firstly, The idea attach me in someways, it happens just like shake your hand. And I become have no hideaway, imagining or hearing it during the daily life. When it gives a signal to inform me that’s getting ready, chooses it’s own way, I hang onto my pens, sound or camera and try to make it real.”

“Sometimes people write me, including friends, they say “how hypnotic thing that you’ve done to me” or something like “you gave me peace and I started to think about my humble daily life” This is nearly enough for me…”

“Black and White occurred to me so early with personal memories, I realized while I was growing up; all works that I’ve made was about giving a message or a little peace to unaware people whose rights have been denied, without questioning. Understanding the hotchpotch of ideas onto people’s perception, forced me to find many communication ways. For my view, experimenting these ways is a success itself.”
