Born in Istanbul, Naz Sirmen graduated with a degree in Arts and Social Sciences, Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design from Sabanci University in 2013. She now resides and works in Istanbul where her studio is. Sirmen also designs jewellery and believes in the power of constantly generating work an important practice for creativity.
Since childhood Sirmen’s interest has been all about colors. Her mixed media art includes different materials from oil painting on plexiglass to paper cut outs of her sketches bringing volume to her two dimensional work. Her expressionism truly conveys her different view on how we integrate talent and skill within the developing world.
“The diversity and voice of my work expands with everything that the universe has to offer me. Each one of my pieces carry their own personality as well as unite one another. The circles I draw within my work represent the offerings of the universe; its endless ability to create opportunities as well as teach us what life is really about. I believe that without breaking free from one cycle we cannot move on to the next one.”
