ABOUT THE ARTIST

Oral Unlu was born in 1975 in Ankara. He was graduated from Bolu Abant Izzet Baysal University, Faculty of Fine Arts in 2005. He currently lives and works in Istanbul.
His areas of interest are literature of natural philosophy, human psychology and sociology. He merges his works with other disciplines such as installation and photography. In his paintings, he endlessly questions the chaos in nature and reflects it in a rather daring way. He is mostly inspired by the vital connection of trees to the existence, their deep-rooted life, monumental forms and objective link to each other. The  trees unconditionally surrender to his unique interpretation.
