ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hakan Ecevit (1982) was trained in basic drawing techniques in high school. Although he passed the Hacettepe University Faculty of Fine Arts special talent exam in 2000, he preferred Gazi University, Faculty of Architecture, Department of City and Regional Planning and graduated in 2005. He studied basic design, art history, architecture and urban design at the university After graduation, he spent 7 years in Paris, Cologne, Amsterdam and İstanbul and he practised with some local artists and illustrators who designed the visual ads of the company (Nokia) he worked in. With his works, he held his first exhibition in the USA in 2017. His works were exhibited in Turkey and abroad, and were included in collections. He still continues his works in his own atelier in Ankara, the capital of Turkey.
He is always seeking a new way of contemporary art and he continues to create different styles of artworks. For him everything starts with dreaming and he believes that the creativity is innate. He reflects the world around him on his drawings and paintings by reshaping it with his imagination. Creation starts with a shape or image appearing in his mind. Sometimes an entire image appears in his mind, but sometimes he follows his instincts without knowing what will be created in the end. Sometimes his artworks have a discourse, sometimes just let you feel it by yourselves. He’s dedicated to affect people and make them happy, surprised and excited by his art. He loves drawing and painting abstract, colourful shapes and patterns on many kinds of themes. Tiwox creates themed works with lines. Works starting with only one line become increasingly complex, articulated, so they are transformed into a shape. He creates various themes with his style. He has an effort to make aesthetic presentation colorful or dark in his work.
