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 do some art direction and curation, frequently collaborating with other artists. Earlier this year, I curated the Girls Unite 2020 Calendar, which featured my work alongside eleven other talented artists' and sold 400 copies. I am also the co-founder of 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.
