I am a Turkish/German multimedia artist based in London, represented by Adolescent Content. I was a longtime contributor at Rookie Mag, Tavi Gevinson's beloved magazine for teenage girls. Now I create collages and take photos for a variety of brands and publications, including ELLE, i-D, VICE, Lazy Oaf, Drift Mag, Girls Are Awesome and others. I love DIY culture and creating things with a handmade feel to them.
I also work as a director's assistant in the film industry and in advertising. Most recently I was the assistant to director Autumn de Wilde on the Focus Features adaptation of Jane Austen's "Emma", starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Johnny Flynn. Before that, I worked as a director's assistant on "Viva la Vulva", Kim Gehrig's award-winning video ad for the feminine hygiene brand Bodyform.
In my spare time, I art direct and curate, frequently collaborating with other artists. In April 2020, I co-founded Nearness, an online magazine that documents the various responses to changes brought on by COVID-19. The beautiful art and writing on the site encourages self-reflection, open conversations about mental health and a rare and real opportunity to slow down and process what is happening to us. Inspired by the community we created, I went on to curate the Nearness 2021 Calendar, which featured my work alongside eleven other talented artists'. You can buy a copy of it here.
