Ayhan Taskiran

He was born in 1968 in Canakkale. In 1993 Completed his undergraduate education at Anadolu University Faculty of Fine Arts Ceramics Department. In 1996 Completed his master thesis titled “Ceramic-Painting Relationship From Beginning to the Republican Period” at Anadolu University, Institute of Social Sciences, Department of Ceramics. The artist continues his painting works in
Canakkale.

Here Taskiran summarizes his view of Art:
“Art is the reason for my existence. In my art, the center is human. It is a person who cries, smiles, thinks and has weaknesses. Therefore, I care about emotion before color and stain. Each emotion determines its own color and space. On the other hand, these people are time passengers who travel between the past and the future. They can be anywhere, anytime, and they seem to know everything. So their crooked out-of-proportioned bodies and the makeshift outfits they wear on them will not offend them. They look into the void, dreaming of their new journeys”…
