Mehmet Gazioglu ; The artist, centering on creativity, feelings and vision, keeps up with the fast developing designs with his style. His artistic vocabulary started with a progress of images manipulated through reflectivity of psychedelic photography.
He pursued making visible what was invisible in the metal and made the details visible in the material that our physical perception could not even notice. This contained an idea identical to the transformation of both object and perception while creating a state of awareness. In other sayings, it was the destroying of the illusion that we had nothing to see. By unlocking his imagination, he started to work by combining new techniques with his abstract artistic preference. He present his own story.
Born in 1977 in Istanbul, He grew up in the steel industrial world that his family has been manufacturing since four generations and he worked there as chief operating officer and investments executive. He is still actively working as vice president of his company. Growing up in a social family supporting his identity. Finding inspiration from an open mind ,he explores mechanical materials toward more masculine and living pop culture designs into conceptual art. Mehmet Gazioğlu has been interested in ancient and modern art, visual language, modern arhitecture, popular culture and photography.
Artist transforms the material, the wastes we ignore, and many more things that we do not realize, while also allowing for imagination and reproduction of interpretation with forms and colors. He lights a fire in the middle of the void with what he adds to and cuts out from the material. The sculptures are volatile.
