From the "Fan Page" Series Social media and the dense culture of the internet lately forges the base of my works. I watch and consider how this freshly emerging "internet culture" makes its way into our daily life, reflecting itself on every surface. I observe people, without any age restriction, starting to create their own language, opposite and extreme processes such as, to admire, like and hate, turning into fast reactions through instant sharings. While social media forms the basis of this series, my works directly come from easily accessible pools of the image which is open to society, reachable for every user, and available to be saved by them. On the other hand, I try to carry these easy access images into art, with a technique being used for centuries; collage. The series of "Fan Page" started to shape up firstly in my sketchbooks. In the images I encounter and save, watching how sports merge people, as a consequence of taking sides how being side by side with the opposite one, how different economical classes being in the same front, brought the fact that "Fan Page" has a different base from just a social media observation. This series consists of various techniques of art; such as drawing, watercolor, oil painting and this variety of materials actually tries to define the process itself; first meeting in social media, hiding, looking again, and creating a new language. While thinking about this cooperation through the internet with billions of users, clipping it to the base of sports is born from my own perspective as a user. Sports, not being bounded to only its viewer, somehow reaching everyone with a channel actually brings spiritual triggers, the definitions to organize, to stand together, to oppose, to create a common language or to share, together. This artwork is only available at shopi go ART. The Certificate of Authenticity containing the name, date, technique, size and edition information of the work will be signed by the artist and delivered to you. This artwork will be delivered within 2-5 working days.
