Having completed his education in Architecture, in Künste Wien, Akademie der bildenen Künste Wien in Austria, Pekin received his Master’s degree in SCI-Arc (Southern California Institute of Architecture).
Examining the architectural compositions built in the digital environment at the artistic scale, Pekin aims to create different forms each time by defining software as a visual practice between art and architecture. In doing so, Pekin examines his relationships with analog painting techniques by giving temporary materiality to digital resources. The purpose of the artist’s practice is to create different realities, each with a different form of aesthetics in terms of form, by questioning the
relationship between physical quality and digital outcome.
Ömer Pekin currently lives and works in Istanbul.
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.
