Born in Istanbul,Turkey in 1989. Çagla completed her education with a Master’s Degree in Visual Arts from Art School Creapole ESDI in Paris. The same year in 2013, she moved to New York where she started attending classes at the Art Student’s League of New York. She graduated from Royal College of Art, London in 2018 with an MA in painting.
Living within three distinct cultures, Çagla has experienced the history and traditions of both east and west. Her work, which emphasizes surface details, is a rich tapestry of personal references and memories is inspired mostly by the clash of cultures that she embodies.
Working in a wide range of mediums, and often in large-scale, Çağla builds up textural layers in her paintings that become embedded with narrative. Recognisable objects are discernible in some of her compositions, but these remain disassociated and unmoored from context, signs and symbols in Çağla’s personal visual language.
Çağla Ulusoy lives and works in Istanbul.
