Serpil Mavi Üstün

Born in Çanakkale in 1979, Serpil graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, Neş’e Erdok Studio in 2008. She then attended Hüsnü Koldaş’s arctic mosaics, fresco and sigrafito workshop for a further two years. Her work has been exhibited and sold in Istanbul and across Europe since 2006.

Serpil is greatly influenced by the philosopher Heidegger’s statement that the work of art “creates a world of its own”. From this, she finds a world created by the paintings themselves, as a result of her own direct dialogue with herself. This is a special, tranquil world reorganised with patience that invites harmony through imagination and purity.

Serpil has been living in London since April 2016.
