Kaan Küley was born in 1978 in Bursa, Turkey. In 2005, he graduated from the Sculpture department of Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University. The difficulty of exercising the sequence ‘’introduction-development-conclusion’’ led the artist to draw and he chose to show instead of telling. He tried numerous media including mud in order to put forward the sense of tactility.
For Kaan Küley, creativity is first and foremost a process of trial and error. Focused on ‘being on the road’ instead of the end product, for Küley the artwork takes its force from its ‘incompleteness’. In his latest works, Küley comes back to his starting point drawing. Having the most important part in the creative process of his sculptures, Küley sees the drawing as the complement of his sculptures.
Kaan Küley lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey.
