Kerem Durukan

Kerem Durukan was born in 1987 in Afyon. He completed his art education in Eskişehir Anadolu Fine Arts High School Painting Department (2001-2005) and Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Industrial Design Department (2005-2008). Durukan has been studying Graphic Design at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University since 2008 and studied Visual Communication Design at Bauhaus University in 2010-2011.

“Drawing was not a love story that would last forever and fortunately it wasn’t. This door, through which I walked with more self-confidence later in life, was a way of expressing my drive to understand, question, reflect on and describe life.” He feels the freedom and responsibility of self-expression. His study began with drawing and has led to design, sculpture, photography, installation and performance. He describes this continuing development by saying,

“It’ll probably continue to transform as long as I’m alive.”*
