Working several years as the manager of creative department in a multinational company, Sibel Ek moved to Turkey in 2010. She started to practice art in Romania and improved her skills by attending workshops of Sait Işık and Yavuz Deniz. She continues to practice art in her own atelier in Lüleburgaz.
If I was asked "which art movements influenced my works at most?", my answer will be surrealism and abstract!
Because surrealism is not a game to prove your skills which is played by art, mind and logic, but rather a transfusion of subconscious. Therefore, it is impossible to explain art with logic. Logic can't understand the influence of art. For logic, art is just a game (played by adults), a return back to childhood, a longing to good old days. Yet childhood era is human life's most free, realistic and liberal period. To sum up, what is art? Art is the symbol of subconscious, emotion and passion.
