Aytekin, who currently teaches at the Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts Painting Department Printmaking Studio, frequently references the transformation of forms and symbols in the history of art, as well as the crossovers between writing, architecture and painting.
Aytekin's compositions fuse the shapes of real life objects and architectural structures with imprints from the artist's memory. They carry Aytekin's research on line, colour, surface, geometry and the faculty of sight. The artist works and lives in Istanbul.
Born in 1972, currently lives and work in Istanbul.
Ömer Pekin born 1991 in Istanbul, Turkey lives and works in Istanbul. He received a masters degree in architecture from SCI-Arc, Southern California Institute of Architecture and a bachelors degree from Akademie der bildenen Künste Wien, Austria.
Ömer Pekin develops digital imagery to explore digitally enhanced architectural compositions as art. Through utilization of emergent systems and other computational algorithms he has developed a unique form of visual practice that evolves between art and architecture. His works mimic analog abstract painting techniques by giving digital sources a pseudo materiality. Questioning the relationship between physical qualities and the digital output, he aims to create various realities, each carrying a distinct aesthetic in terms of form and pattern. His work embodies different media such as digital imagery, prints, 3D prints and other objects.
His works have been published and exhibited in various locations in Austria, Turkey and USA.
