2D

Sercan Apaydın (İzmir, 1983), who completed his education at Eskişehir Anadolu University, Department of Art and Craft Teaching in 2007, worked as an instructor at Tvind International Schools in Denmark between 2013-15. By participating in artist exchange programs, he continued his artistic practice in St. Hanri Association at the Payra Sur l'Herse artist camp in France in 2016 and at the KEX Studio within WUK in Vienna in Austria in 2019.
His works have been exhibited in Denmark, France and Germany and he opened his first solo exhibition Deep Emptiness at Versus Art Project in Istanbul in 2015. Then he opened his solo exhibitions By Owner (2017), Internal Design (2018) and Inn (2020), respectively.
Currently, the artist continues to work at his studio in Heybeliada, Istanbul.
Sercan Apaydın deals with issues such as architecture and its ideological background, the perception of the painter in the age of information, while developing thoughts on the relationship of life and space in the city and nature landscapes he made with an observant point of view. Apaydın, organized a number of installations that overflows the painting surface and create interior spaces with the three-dimensional forms that he produced. He discusses philosophical ideas such as establishing his own space, by painting being the space itself, especially with his works consisting of canvas chassis and rods. The view, stance and presence on this basis emphasize the importance of all vital practices. In his paintings, he uses techniques such as collage and assemblage as well as painting within the framework of urban life, architectural space, and geometric distance.
