He is a self-taught
artist born in Istanbul,Turkey.
He painted on and off during his
banking career as a hobby. In 2001
he opted for early retirement to
spare time to paint. It was not
until 2004 however that he took up
art as a career. Since then he
exhibited in various venues in
Turkey. He finds watercolour a very
exciting medium to paint with and
although he uses a variety of
techniques and styles, he likes
painting in a loose, quick and wet
style trying to render works look
fresh and transparent.
