"My work explores various themes ranging from personal experiences that I gather from traveling journeys since childhood. Growing up as a mixed race of half Turkish and half Pakistani, I am exposed to various cultural perceptions and views while adapting to many different cultures, languages, and people. This has allowed me to see both the Asian and Western perspective and get used to them very quickly. My approaches to art making are detailed and abstract, with a representation of nature. As a landscape artist, giving my works meaning is essential in connecting with my audiences, as they are related to my personal identity. Engaging with local artists in my hometown and abroad, the exchange of ideas about art today and how it functions in society, spaces and institutions has allowed for my artworks to find relevance to contemporary art."
