Ceren Oykut

Ceren Oykut was born in Istanbul in 1978. Graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Painting Department in 2002. Her drawings, which often cover small scraps of paper as well as paper rolls, extend classical techniques in terms of size and space. Focusing on small details, Oykut conveys a condensed image of an ungraspable panorama that explores the absurdity of daily life and circumstances. She also focuses on different disciplines of art, expanding the action of drawing with light and shadow. She makes drawing performances on stage and collaborates with artists from different disciplines. She has participated in projects in France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Cyprus, Poland, Austria, Palestine, Egypt and Serbia. She lives and works in Berlin.
