Deeply affected by the outcomes of the current turmoil in Turkey, this summer, I have moved to Los Angeles with my family. An Istanbul-born artist, a New Yorker, a Gocek and Istanbul resident continues to relocate in search of peace of mind. Yes, the whole world is going mad, but at least here we are close to the freedom of the ocean, we can feel the warm presence of the sun and we can still express ourselves. If you are ever around, let's stop by at my Manhattan Beach studio. This way, we can meet in person, chat, get a coffee, and you can see the works first-hand.
