About Me


#occuppyturkey/ R E S I S T TURKEY


Its hard to describe myself about personal ways. I think this is something which has to be asked to my friends. so now Im going to "bla bla" something.

I have been living in Eskisehir/ Turkey for 8 years. I studied and worked there. Im graduated from Art Education. But I was more interested in Painting so, decided to study Painting at Fine Arts department for my Master degree. Than I applied for PhD and during my PhD, I became to a lecturer for some drawing courses in the same university that I studied.

But suddenly I left everything and moved to Denmark. I was volunteering in a school for 1,5 years.

Finally I moved back to Turkey. Now I am trying to survive in İstanbul!

p.s1; you can check some of my works here, https://www.behance.net/

p.s.2; for my hosts, I really have strong phobia about snakes..so if its not written on your profile that you feed/have it, and if I want to surf in your couch, just let me know about it! thank you


well, if I woulndt study painting, I would like to study theatre for sure! thats why I acted in a theatre club. 2 years as a performer and one year worked in the backstage. I love theatre! One of my regrets is about not becamin to an actress

I like cinema as well..well mostly watching(except few funny short movies that me and my friends made)

Im not very good about cooking but I like it. well, honestly I like eating more :)

listening music is part of my life - thats also might sounds like an survey answer:) but it is- I like singing also. I have a big(not very big) casestte archive.

I like old stuff. probably tahts why fleas markets and some old boxes are really attractive to me.

besides, I like trains, making "own" thing and making my own sketchbooks, puppets, alcohol, vacuum cleaners' click sound when it took the dust and some other things.

well..not very interesting life!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

watching the endless sun at Uutsujoki, Finland with reindeers and being almost at the top of the world - it was worth all those endless hitchikings- getting on a roller coaster- by mistake- attending to Gucca Festival in Serbia! every moment of it was amazing riding bike through the car lights in Amsterdam- okey this was kinda touristic behaviour- running away from "alliens" in new year eve-2011 at Kabak having a great few hours in Budapest with few great guys who took me to a wedding party
