ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ipek Chi was born in Eskişehir. In 2003, she graduated from Istanbul Bilgi University, Faculty of Communication, Public Relations Department and received graphic and animation education. Since childhood, the artist has been painting and has developed various techniques and created her own painting "language". She approaches art with passion and gets inspiration from her impressions of life:
"Art is the whole discipline that helps people to perceive the unseen, which leads to a period of inward turning away from the necessities of rational life, a light that holds art in this way; A magic, a spiritual light.
It is my strongest and most pleasant expression to reflect what I perceive from life. The subjects of the public are the universe, philosophical movements, myths, music and cinema; the facts I inspire. In short, the thoughts and observations I have in my life are my subjects of interest, my pictures. "
She completes her compositions by combining concrete objects and figures in her paintings, thus forming the story of the painting. There are collage, gouache, oil painting, black pencil works of her and se continues her freelance work in Istanbul.
