Drawing on themes of transience, chaos and the human footprint, Berkay Bugdan's works incorporate various industrial materials and data analysis techniques with classical painting and sculpture.
Bugdan's works are characterized by his use of experimental surfaces and image composing methods that each introduce an aspect of relinquishing control for the artist. Weather by chaotic output from software, uncooperative rectified materials or simple corrosion, the production methods often render the final piece just as much as the artist does. This conflict or balance of the artists narrative perspective and unruly techniques define the artists unique style.
Berkay Bugdan was born in 1986, in Istanbul. Following his study of illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art, he has travelled America and Eastern Europe before finally returning to Istanbul in 2011 for his début exhibition.
