Şahin Demir

Şahin Demir was born in Mardin in 1987. He graduated from Selçuk University, Fine Arts Education Department in 2011. In 2012, he began the graduate program at Selçuk University Institute of Social Sciences. 

Demir, who received the Peker Art award, RH + Young Artist of the Year award, and the Achievement award at the 2nd National Painting Competition of Karabük University, participated in many group exhibitions including Cermodern and Bucharest Palace of Parliament and held four solo exhibitions.

Demir’s works consist of metaphors based on impression. Inspired by the randomness of nature, Şahin Demir transforms meaning into form through layers and incorporates his own process into this narrative. The distant expression of portraits shaped by combining acrylic and oil paint with texture, figurative compositions consisting of animals, humans and trees and observations on humans and nature are handled with an original interpretation.
