Evren Sarptunali

He was born in 1982 in Kutahya / Simav. In 2005, he won the Canakkale March 18 University Fine Arts Painting Department. In 2009, he completed the Painting Department of Çanakkale March 18 University, Faculty of Fine Arts, as the winner of the Faculty in the workshop of Hakan Daloglu. He took a break from the Canakkale March 18 University Master of Art Painting Program due to his studies. During these years, he continued his studies on Ancient Mosaic and Classical paintings. He preferred the Ancient Period subjects and made serious studies on horse races and gladiator fights in Anatolia during the Roman and Byzantine Periods. He painted different subjects, made experiments, and as a result he focused his subjects mostly on horse and horse races. He has taken part in international workshops and other exhibitions around the globe. He still continues his works in his workshop in Kutahya.
 
Here is Evren's Point of View of His Art:
It is important not how I study, but how I handle it. Figure, light and shadow have always been my starting point.
