Şahin Demir was born in Mardin in 1987. He graduated from Selçuk University, Fine Arts Education Department in 2011. In 2012, he started graduate education at Selcuk University Institute of Social Sciences. The artist, who received the Peker Art Awards, RH + Young Artist of the Year, and the 2nd National Painting Competition Achievement Award of Karabük University, participated in many group exhibitions in numerous venues including Cermodern and Bucharest Palace of Parliament and held four solo exhibitions.
Demir’s works consist of metaphors based on impression. Nature, which draws the random to its own scene, always transforms it into a poetic, imaginary caste and timeless story. In this narrative, the artist expresses his adventure which frees the most of the texture and transforms it into a meaning.
