TOYGUN ÖZDEMİR

2D

Toygun Özdemir (Izmir, 1986) completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. The artist belongs to the young generation of Turkish painters that represent a new pictorial language within Turkish modern art history. In line with the Turkish academic tradition of Modernist painting, Özdemir's paintings represent a one of a kind bridge between Turkish masters of the early 20th century and the contemporary understandings of representational painterly expression. The artist thematically explores the absurd and the ambivalent situations that the 21st century youngsters find themselves in, with peculiar black humor.
